A Chemical tanker RYOSHIN MARU has collided with Chinese general cargo ship XIN HAI 99 at around 0200 Tokyo time August 20, 2022, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Chemical tanker RYOSHIN MARU collided with Chinese general cargo ship XIN HAI 99 at around 0200 Tokyo time Aug 20 some 2 nm off Kushimoto, Wakayama Prefecture, southeast Honshu. Ships were sailing in opposite directions, tanker bow struck cargo ship in starboard superstructure area, hull was breached, engine room flooded, XIN HAI 99 developed aft tilt and starboard list.

“XIN HAI 99 either managed under own power, or was towed/escorted, into a bay off Shinomisaki, probably intentionally grounded to avoid sinking. Fuel leak reported, CG is responding, to curb the leak.

“XIN HAI 99 was sailing with cargo of steel Kawasaki to Wakamatsu, tanker was ballasting from Kobe to Kashima. Tanker was anchored off Wakayama coast, for inspection and investigation, her bow sustained serious damages.”
