Recent maritime disasters Off Indian coast

Reports of accidents taking place despite the best efforts of the administration have upset the industry and port authorities alike. What is appalling is that these incidents seem to defy all the safety measures put in place for making oceans safe and secure and to bring in efficiency in shipping.

List of Recent maritime disasters Off Indian coast

March 23, 2010 -In an incident March 23, 2010, an Indian Coast Guard ship (ICGS) was rammed by a merchant navy ship, M.V. Global Purity, when the latter was being brought for docking at the Mumbai Port Trust.The merchant vessel hit ICGS Vivek thrice, severely damaging its hull and causing heavy flooding on board when it was undergoing repairs in the Indira Docks. Subsequently, ICGS Vivek sank in the port area.

Aug 7, 2010- Barely five months later, on Aug 7, 2010, two foreign cargo ships - M.V. MSC Chitra and M.V. Khalijia-3 - collided in the main navigation channel of the Mumbai harbour, seriously disrupting maritime traffic going in and out of the port, as well as the adjacent Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and the Naval Dockyard.The collision resulted in nearly 400 tonnes of oil spill, some impact of which can still be seen in the mangroves in the Mumbai, Thane and Raigad coastal areas.Besides the environmental hazards it caused, several huge loaded containers slid and fell off the heavily tilted M.V. MSC Chitra, resulting in the total closure of harbour channel for a fortnight.

Aug 31 2010 - On Aug 31 last year, a coastal cargo vessel, M.V. Nand Hajara, which was docked in Indira Docks for unloading a steel consignment, brushed against another ship, M.V. Beas Dolphin, when the latter was being docked.One wing ballast water tank of M.V. Nand Hajara sustained a huge hole, leading to ingress of water and tilting the vessel by over seven degrees. Luckily, the authorities got into action immediately and managed to save the ship from sinking.

Jan 31 2011 - On Jan 31 this year, the Indian Navy suffered a tragedy when its frontline frigate INS Vindhyagiri collided with a Cyprus-flagged container cargo ship, M.V. Nordlake.Despite all efforts to save it, INS Vindhyagiri sank the following day, making it the worst-ever peacetime disaster and loss of a precious ship for the Indian Navy.

June 11 2011 - Two months ago, on June 11, a Singapore-flag ship, M.V. Wisdom, weighing 9,300 tonnes, broke loose from its tugboat, M.V. Seabulk Polver, following inclement weather conditions off the Mumbai coast.

July 31 2011 - In another incident, a 70-metre long, 1,000-tonne cargo carrier, M.T. Pavit, drifted all the way from Ras-Al-Madrakah near Oman to get stuck in the sands at the Versova beach on July 31.

Aug 4 2011 - The latest incident, involving the sinking of the Panama-flagged M.T. Rak Carrier on Aug 4, has raised apprehensions of an ecological hazard once again.
