The Singapore-registered, 1,662 teu container vessel Wan Hai 301 and a Gibraltar-registered, 4,250 teu container vessel APL Denver collided near midnight last night off Pasir Gudang Port in Johor, Malaysia.

The master of the APL Denver reported that one of the ship’s bunker tanks sustained damage resulting in approximately 300 tonnes of oil spillage. The Johor Port Authority has deployed four anti-pollution craft on site and an oil boom around the APL ship to contain the oil spill.

In Singapore, some oil patches were spotted and the spillage has been contained off the western side of Pulau Ubin. The local port authority has activated a total of eight anti-pollution craft with dispersant spraying capabilities to clean up the spilled oil.
