The M/T Erin Wood was towed to Scotland’s Peterhead Harbour following a collision with M/V Daroja on August 30. The U.K. Maritime and Coast Guard Agency (MCA) responded to the collision and no injuries were reported.
The ships were on crossing routes when the Erin Wood made a last-minute course correction, which caused the Cyprus-registered Daroja to slam into the tanker’s bow. The Erin Wood, which is a bunkering tanker, suffered damage to the hull and a ballast compartments to be flooded.
Local authorities are investigating the cause of the collision.
The Daroja is a 4,155 dwt vessel and is operated by German shipping company H&H Bereederung.
