Hai An 16
(Oil And Chemical Tanker > Oil Products Tanker)
The "Hai An 16" suffered an explosion in a pump room and subsequent fire on Sep 21, 2017, around noon, while offloading cargo of gasoline at Hai Phong port, while petrol was being pumped from the K99 port in the Hai An District. The explosion occurred because of petrol leakage in the pumping room. The accident injured three sailors and caused some damage. The sailors were brought to hospital for emergency treatment and have recovered. The "Hai An 16" was then quickly isolated to ensure safety. The petrol was pumped to another ship to prevent further explosions.
Some 1,700 cbm of petrol were drained from the ship as of Sep 27 afternoon. Authorities have warned of another possible explosion on the ship and requested relevant agencies to quickly pump all the petrol from the ship. The tanker was taken to an anchorage off the port to ensure port and city safety before the fire was extinguished. The authorities were working on a plan to offload the 4.000 tons of the cargo of gasoline from the damaged tanker.

The salvage of the "Atlantic" will take place no earlier than Sep 25. 28 tons of on the whole 44 tons of diesel in a threatened tank must be removed first, which were according, to the latest calculations, in the most critically exposed tank. There were no storage facilities aboard the vessel, and ships with enough tank capacity can not get close enough to the grounding site. The owner has therefore ordered a tank barge. The barge was expected to arrive at the accident late on Sep 24, also on site was the tug "Oscar" (MMSI: 265568280). The Coast Guard, the Transport Inspector, a representative of the insurance company were on board of the ship. In addition, the arrested chief mate has been taken aboard with guards and police to take the role of commander. This is necessary prior to a salvage attempt.
The weather was still smooth, but increasing winds were expected along with a slightly higher water level.
