Taiwan: Bunker tanker ‘Taian No. 2’ damaged in collision with pier, oil spill incurred

20 Oct 2020

The Taian No. 2, a bunker tanker which operates at Taichung port in Taiwan suffered a breach at its hull after being pushed by a gust of wind on Monday (19 October), according to the Maritime Bulletin.

The wind caused the tanker to hit upon the banks of the pier at Taichung port, resulting in damage to the cargo tank; the development caused some fuel to leak into the harbour.

A rescue cleansing operation has since been launched, and the area around the tanker has been fenced off. 

Taian No. 2 is a 2,489 dwt Taiwan-flagged bunker tanker built in 2020 and managed by Ta-Tong Marine Co Ltd.
