15 containers fall into water in Singapore


Some 15 empty containers at Keppel Terminal in Singapore fell from the wharf into the water due to strong winds during a squall last Thursday.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said the incident, which occurred at about 1500hrs local time, did not have an adverse effect on operations at the port or caused injuries.

MPA said it has deployed two patrol crafts to monitor and cordon off the affected area to facilitate recovery work by PSA Corporation Ltd.

MPA said its Port Operations Control Centre has restricted vessel movements in the vicinity of Keppel Terminal until the containers are recovered.
