The 4,500 teu Hanjin Aqua remains hard aground in Indonesia’s Sundra Strait. The Korean vessel ran aground off Sangiang island on Friday. It has 2,303 boxes onboard and was travelling from Adelaide to Jakarta when it ran into difficulty. The ship has listed and local reports suggest the hull has breached although there is no danger of the ship sinking. The local coastguard is on the scene assessing the situation.
A Hanjin spokesperson confirmed to Splash this morning that the ship still cannot move.
“There is no reported casualties or marine pollution and the cause of the accident is currently under investigation,” the spokesperson said.
