Safmarine Zambezi damaged in port
Mar 25, 2004
According to reports the Safmarine container ship Safmarine Zambezi has received hull damage while in port at Port Elizabeth and is currently on repair layby at berth 102 (one of the container cargo handling berths).
It would appear the damage was the result of a collision with another vessel, possibly one of the tugs, although this hasnít been confirmed. Reports indicate the ship is carrying a large amount of heavy fuel oil which cannot be transferred ashore as the port doesnít have sufficient storage facilities, which is hampering the repair.
