On Sunday 22nd November, 2020 the containership TINA 1 grounded off Batam in Indonesia into another grounded containership SHAHRAZ that has been in the same position since 10th May, 2020.
The 2004 Japanese built containership TINA I owned by Technomar Shipping of Greece and on charter to Maersk, ran aground near Batu Berhanti around 2340 hrs appearing to collide with the stern of the SHAHRAZ. Local reports confirmed the grounding and that it was being investigated by the Basarnas Batam post. Based on vessel traffic data the Greek owned and managed TINA I had sailed from Pasir Panjang terminal in Singapore at 2300hrs bound for Jakarta, Indonesia and headed towards the eastbound lane of the Traffic Separation Scheme in the Singapore Strait. An industry source said the Master could have become disorientated at night in the busy shipping lane. She’s the former YM GREAT.
The 2008 built Iranian flagged containership SHAHRAZ grounded following a collision with the 2001 Indonesian flagged bulker SAMADRA SAKTI on 11th May this year. The Iranian ship has remained aground in Indonesia waters since then.
