South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs’ Oil Spill Response team has reported that the oil spill from grounded bulker Kiani Satu is now “under control.”

Three of the sisterships of the MOL Comfort, the boxship that split in two in June, have returned to service after undergoing hull strengthening.

The Leonhardt and Blumberg owned boxship Hansa Brandenburg has berthed safely in the port of St Louis, Mauritius, with preparations being made for the discharge of containers.

Divers have recovered a body from the Mongolian-flagged barge that capsized in Singapore Strait on 24 July.

Search and rescue efforts continued on Thursday for eight crew missing from the Mongolian-flagged barge that capsized in the Singapore Strait on 24 July.

Nine seafarers are missing after a barge capsized in the Singapore Strait on Wednesday.

The 1,740 teu Hansa Brandenburg is now under tow to Mauritius after salvors Five Oceans Salvage and SMIT Salvage extinguished the fire and successfully made a towing connection over the weekend.

Five Oceans Salvage and SMIT Salvage have boarded 1,740teu container vessel Hansa Brandenburg and successfully contained the fire.

The salvors report that the damage was most extensive in one of the vessel's cargo holds as well as the forepart of the acommodation block. No oil pollution from the incident was reported, and an initial survey for a towing connection to the vessel has been completed, with towing to be undertaken by tug Coral Sea Flos.

Leonhardt & Blumberg have appointed Five Oceans Salvage and SMIT Salvage for the salvaging of the still-ablaze and heavily damaged 1,740teu container vessel Hansa Brandenburg.

Mauritian Coast Guard vessels have been dispatched to the scene of the Leonhardt & Blumberg-owned, Liberian-flagged, 1,740 teu container vessel Hansa Brandenburg, adrift 200 nm Northeast of the islands.
