The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Friday (7 June) issued its final update on the Dominica-flagged supply vessel Ocean Cooper 2 which capsized and sank within Singapore Territorial Waters in the Singapore Strait on 14 February.
It has since completed a hydrographic survey of the wreck site. The wreck is located at Latitude 1?20.030’N and Longitude 104?21.409’E, and is 41m below the sea surface.
“This is significantly deeper than the deepest draught of transiting vessels (which is 22m below the sea surface),” it states.
“MPA has determined that the wreck does not pose a risk to the safety of navigation and will not affect shipping traffic in the area.”
The port authority will update its nautical charts to indicate the location of the wreck, and issue a Notice to Mariners to keep the maritime community updated.
