MERANTI devastated Kaohsiung Port

Sept. 14, 2016 at 16:03 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

Super typhoon MERANTI wreaked devastation and chaos in Kaohsiung Port on Sep 14. Several fishing vessels were damaged, one partially sank, resting on bottom starboard. Container terminals look like they were shelled by a battleship. No names of damaged vessels given yet, it is said that at least 10 freighters anchored on outer road suffered dragging anchors, but no groundings reported so far. A newbuild of 14,000 TEU for SEASPAN, still under construction, broke off moorings and started to drift, understood she was somehow put under control by tugs. A crane crashed onto container ship which was definitely damaged, but again, vessel’s name yet unknown.
