The Shine Luck, one of two tankers grounded at Kaohsiung during a storm on 14 June (Thursday) evening, broke into half on the morning of June 18, according to local media.
Fortunately, debunkering operations on the stricken vessel’s bunker fuel were completed the day before despite bad weather, thus avoiding oil spill pollution.
The front half of the Shine Luck has been towed to Kaohsiung Port Intercontinental Container Terminal, and the stern is scheduled for removal when weather conditions improve.
The 5,245 dwt Panama-flagged vessel is believed to be owned by Sino Marine.
