Norway’s Awilco LNG says that its 2013-built LNG carrier WilForce was struck by another vessel off Singapore last Thursday.
The company says that no crew injuries or spills were reported onboard their vessel, which is now en route to a nearby yard for class inspection and hull repairs. Awilco LNG did not reveal the name of the other vessel involved in the incident, which it claims is at fault for the collision.
“Based on a preliminary assessment of facts Awilco LNG holds the other vessel fully and completely liable for the collision, and the company expects to recover all costs, losses and expenses including deductibles in due course,” Awilco LNG said in a statement.
It is currently unclear how long the vessel will be out of action.
