A Panamanian-registered ship ran aground in a northern Japan harbor, then split in two and was spilling oil. Yet, there were no losses among the 21 team.
Notwithstanding, the oil spill was being controlled without any signs it had arrived at shore, as per specialists.
The 39,910-ton vessel, “Crimson Polaris,” was conveying wood chips when it steered into the rocks in the first part of the day of Wednesday August 11 in Hachinohe harbor.
The ship (Crimson Polaris) figured out how to free itself, but because of helpless climate, it couldn’t move far and wound up securing around 4 kilometers (2.4 miles) out from the port.
The vessel, which was toward the end of a journey from Thailand, split in two almost immediately on Thursday August 12.
An oil slick 5.1 kilometers long by about 1 kilometer wide was visible later in the day, but containment measures were being taken by patrol boats.
The vessel’s two parts is yet to move and are being monitored by patrol boats.
