Over the weekend, the general cargo ship Sea Express lost stability while loading cargo at Mundra Port in India. The 17,500 dwt freighter listed portside, then starboard, finally coming to rest on the pier to starboard, with numerous containers tumbling into the ocean.
The Panama-flagged ship capsized at DP World’s Mundra International Container Terminal (MICT). The event happened Saturday afternoon about 13:00 p.m. local time, and no crewmembers were injured. Adani Ports and Special Economic Zones own and administer Mundra Port (APSEZ).
The vessel, which came from Jebel Ali port in the United Arab Emirates, is managed by UAE-based Nan Lian Ship Management and owned by Sea Express Line, according to Equasis.
The ship was stabilized five hours after the incident, according to local media sources. Local authorities are investigating the accident’s cause.
