TS Taipei block catches fire at CSBC

A fire has broken out yesterday on a ship block at Taiwan’s CSBC’s Keelung yard during the dismantling of containership TS Taipei.

Local fire brigade deployed a freighting team and the shipyard also deployed several firefighting ships and managed to put out the fire within a few hours. No casualty were reported.

TS Taipei was stranded near Keelung in March and it was dismantled and transported to the yard in August for further disposal work.
