The stricken Liberia-registered container ship MSC Messina has arrived at Singapore port on Tuesday (6 July) to discharge containers and undergo repairs at a shipyard, according to a Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) notice posted on 10 July.
A fire had occurred in the engine room of MSC Messina on 25 June 2021 in the Bay of Bengal, while the vessel was enroute from Sri Lanka to Singapore.
After the fire was put out, MSC Messina was towed to Singapore for repairs and cargo operations.
MPA also facilitated the repatriation of the body of a deceased crew member to his country of domicile.
Six members of the MSC Messina crew are currently serving their 14-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) at an SHN Dedicated Facility.
They will return to the ship upon completion of the SHN and negative PCR tests, and thereafter be placed under Rostered Routine Testing. The agent has made arrangements for the remaining crew to sign off and return to their country of domicile.
