Hapag-Lloyd seals ship’s oil leak

The German liner carrier is still assessing the cause of its containership’s punctured hull at the Global Marine New York Container Terminal.

   German liner carrier Hapag-Lloyd said it has successfully contained an oil leak from one of its containerships tied up at the Global Marine New York Container Terminal.
   According to the carrier, a roughly 15 inch-by-15 inch hole was discovered in the hull of the Dublin Express during unloading operations on Thursday evening, through which oil had escaped. The hole was patched that night. 
   To contain the spilled oil, the carrier cast containment booms around the ship for cleanup.
   Hapag-Lloyd did not say what caused the damage to the ship’s hull.
   “It is still too early to make an accurate assessment of the damage,” the carrier said in a press release on Friday afternoon. “Hapag-Lloyd is working closely with the relevant authorities and interested parties to minimize the impact on people and the environment.”
