A German containership, Elbwolf, bound for scrapping in South Asia, has been detained by the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), the crew accused of a hit and run accident last week.
The ship, which has changed the name on its hull to Olf, hit two tankers, Tina 7 and Straits 3, which were anchored off Batu Ayam in Malaysia, and carried on its way without reporting the incident which damaged both smaller vessels. See video below for what happened.
The ship’s crew are made up of Indians and Sri Lankans. The 2,732 teu ship is owned by Germany’s Reederei Hermann Wulff.
