Japanese boxship runs aground near Ho Chi Minh City

The 2017-built 1,707 teu containership Ingenuity ran aground near Ho Chi Minh City late last week.

The incident happened not long after the ship left the Vietnamese city for Ningbo, China.

The ship suffered water ingress due to a breached hull. It was refloated on Friday and sailed back to the anchorage near Ho Chi Minh City. Latest AIS information shows the vessel is still anchored in the area.

The vessel is owned by Japanese owner Kotoku Kaiun.
