Collision in Chattogram port
The unloaded tank m/v "Burgan", while leaving Chittagong port in ballast, was in collision with the “X-press Mahananda”, which was entering port coming from Colomo, Sri Lanka. The accident happened near Guptaband point in the Karnaphuli channel of Chattogram port on June 14 at 8.30 a.m. The feeder, carrying 700 containers, was entering the port channel, and the "Burgan" was leaving port, when they hit bow on bow near the Chittagong Dry Dock and the Boat Club. Both ships suffered significant bow damage. Vessel movement at Chattogram port was halted following the accident, but was cleared four hours after its suspension. The two vessels were separated and moved from the channel to a dock at the Sea Beach Road on the Karnaphuli River, using five tugs of the port authority, around 12:30 p.m. The ships were finally separated on June 16. The container ship was to be taken to a container terminal to offload all of her cargo. The "Burgan" will sail to Kuwait after completing emergency repairs, for regaining seaworthiness.
