2 Huge Ships Collide In Karachi Port Pakistan, Sending 21 Containers Into Sea by Automotive1(m): 3:57pm On Mar 20, 2018

Karachi port in Pakistan has suspended operations after the cargo ship collision which happened on Monday evening. Initial investigation revealed that the pilots of Karachi Port Trust , who took charge of the vessels, are responsible for this incident.

The shocking video shows German-based company Hapag-Lloyd's ship leaving the port and scraping against an anchored vessel fastened beside it, sending loaded containers on both the ships crashing into the sea.

It is not clear what caused the collision but ,21 shipping containers fell into the ocean as port workers watch the scene unfold.

Only the multiple shipping containers that were 'full of imported cars' and other cargoes were damaged. There is no damage to the terminal’s cranes.

The port of Karachi is one of South Asia's largest and busiest deep-water seaports and handles about 60% of the nation's cargo.

 In January, it was reported that over 7,000 imported used cars are lined up at the Karachi port waiting to be picked up creating problems for port authorities to handle the cargo and the situation.

The clip ends as workers film one of the heavy containers slowly sinking into the Arabian sea.

The terminal has suspended operations while a special operation to pull out the fallen containers from the sea is underway with the help of Pakistan Navy.

Huge loss to the entrepreneur or importer, hard luck to them.

Kai

This is so wrong from the pilot of the approaching vessel.
A vessel the size of TOLTEN is not supposed to approached the quay side under its own power! It ought to be on dead slow, while the tugs do the shouldering, pulling and pushing.
There is a reason terminal tugs are being built, just like the ASD DAURA, ASD UROMI, ASD UBIMA and ASD MAJIA recently purchased for the Nigerian premier port, Apapa.

The VDR of the TOLTEN should be replayed to know what exactly transpired at the bridge between the vessel master and the pilot. This will be the start of query from the insurance company. One thing is certain, the owners of the TOLTEN must have been sued by now. As for the sinking containers, this would be cleared by P&I wreck removal cover except the ship has no civil liability certificate for wreck removal pursuant to article 12 of the NAIROBI convection, 2007.


By and large both ships must attend dry dock session, as the classification society needs to suspends the class certificate due to hull damages.

A bad day for a seafarer on board these ships angry


Dont be surprised to see those damged empty containers lying fallow at freedom bus-stop by OTTO WOFF next 6 months grin

That's how people who are waiting to vote buhari will collide and die before the election

We all know that Buhari is leaving presidency very soon, that's sure.

However, no one is sure if you can ever have sense in your life.
