Collision off Algericas
In the early morning of Nov 19, 2016, the "UACC Shams", heading from El Ferrol to Algeciras, collided with the container ship "Celina Star" which was leaving the port bound to Livorno, in the Bay of Algeciras. The accident took place off the beach of Getares. Both vessels suffered damage, but anchored safely in Spanish waters. There were no reports of serious damage to either vessel, nor risk of fuel spillage. The tanker had a dented bulwark at the portside foreship, the boxship dents and bruises at the starboard side aft, both well above the water line. The Port Authority was in communication with its Algeciras counterpart throughout the operations. Both ships were remaining moored off Algericas for the time being. The collision was investigated by the Investigation Commission for Incidents and Incidents (Ciaim) of the Ministry of Public Works.
