ONE Mega Container Vessel Collides With A Chemical Tanker At Piraeus Port
A mega containership under the banner of the famous ONE shipping organization has unfortunately been subjected to a tragic incident where the large-sized vessel has slammed into a chemical tanker at the Piraeus Port in Greece. The ultra-large boxship (by the name of ONE Blue Jay) was built way back in 2016 and is an incredible 14,000 teu in size and was carrying no fewer than 23 crew members on board when it sadly collided with the chemical tanker called Gunece. The 1998-built tanker is owned by a Turkish organization and was berthed at the Perama Port in the Piraeus region in Greece when the accident occurred and resulted in some serious damage where the tanker lost its control and tilted to its right. According to the recent information received by the sources, two crew members have been injured as a direct consequence. The port authority has taken prompt action to avert the disaster by immediately deploying six tugboats and erecting double floating dams to prevent the tanker from drowning and to strengthen the security measures.
