Triple collision of US/German container ships in Yokohama UPDATE PHOTOS
UPDATE: Confirmed the ships involved in accident were correctly identified by Maritime Bulletin/FleetMon in initial news. According to latest news, APL GUAM after collision with MARCLIFF hit HANSA STENBURG, see photos below.
Triple collision between container ships reportedly occurred at Yokohama Anchorage off Nonmoku Terminal, at around 2330 Tokyo time Mar 21. Local sources didn’t identify ships, including their types, and mentioned only their flags. Antigua-flagged ship, according to local sources, struck anchored USA-flagged ship, and later, Liberia-flagged ship, also anchored.
According to AIS tracks, three container ships were involved. Antigua-flagged MARCLIFF has just left Yokohama Nonmoku, bound for Nagoya, and collided with USA-flagged APL GUAM, which was either approaching port or dropping anchor, it's unclear. After separating from APL GUAM, MARCLIFF collided with, or contacted, anchored HANSA STEINBURG.
All three ships, as of 1500 UTC Mar 22, were at anchor on Yokohama anchorage, no information on damages, except that “there was no spill”, so planet is safe.
