553 Cargo Ship Capsize


The SL Star, a 4,400 dwt cargo ship operated by Sea Link Shipping capsized earlier this week while berthed in Shahid Rajaei Port in Bandar Abbas, Iran. The ship was loaded with 153 containers. All fourteen crew members who were on board at the time of the incident were rescued. Initial reports point to the cause being a lack of coordination between the ship’s officer and the contractor charged with unloading the vessel. Preparations have been made to deal with possible pollution and container removal operations have begun.
