CMA CGM boxship runs into pier at Jawaharlal Nehru Port

CMA CGM’s newbuild 10,000 teu boxship CMA CGM Mumbai hit a pier at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port in India on Saturday while it was attempting to berth at the port.

The bow of the ship and the pier both suffered minor damage and no injuries were reported in the incident.

According to local reports, preliminary investigations showed the ship suffered a steering system failure when trying to make a turn.

The ship, built by Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, was delivered to the ship’s owner Seaspan in May this year when it started a three-year charter contract with CMA CGM.
