No Damage to Cargo Aboard ONE’s Ship after Collision in Greece

No damage was reported to the cargo aboard the 14,000 TEU containership ONE Blue Jay following a September 26 collision in Greece.

Shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE), the vessel’s charterer, confirmed that ONE Blue Jay has since departed the Port of Perama on September 27 and is deployed in MD2 service.

The ultra large container vessel (ULCV) “came into contact” with a chemical tanker in the vicinity of Port of Perama, Piraeus, Greece, at around 1409 hours local time, ONE earlier said.

As World Maritime News earlier reported, the vessel crashed into the starboard side of the 6,285 dwt tanker Gunece, which was berthed at the time. The tanker reportedly suffered major damages while two of the 13 crew aboard the unit were injured.

ONE noted that the 23 crew members of the 2016-built ONE Blue Jay were safe, adding that there were no reports of pollution from the vessel.
