15 Feb 2019

The Dominica-flagged supply vessel Ocean Cooper 2 has capsized and sunk in the westbound lane of the Traffic Separation Scheme, about 3 nautical miles from Pedra Branca (latitude 01°20.20’N and longitude 104°21.38’E) at about 7.15am on 14 February 2019, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

All three Indonesian crew, earlier rescued by a nearby accompanying supply vessel Jolly Rachel are all safe. There was no oil pollution or injury reported. 

MPA has issued navigational broadcasts asking ships to navigate with caution in the vicinity of the incident.

It has also deployed a craft to conduct a hydrographic survey of the wreck. Traffic in the Singapore Strait remains unaffected. 

MPA is investigating the incident.
