Yang Ming boxship detained Down Under over US$13m pollution cleanup debt
Date:2020-02-12 Readers:
TAIWAN's Yang Ming Marine Transport's 4,250 TEU containership YM Eternity has been detained at Port Botany in Australia at the request of Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA).

The boxship, YM Eternity, was arrested after AMSA claimed that Yang Ming had refused to pay up to AUD$20 million (US$13.4 million) of clean-up costs after its sister containership YM Efficiency lost 81 containers in extreme rough weather conditions off the Hunter Coast in 2018, causing debris to wash up on beaches throughout the region.

CEO of AMSA, Mick Kinley, said the arrest of YM Eternity shows that AMSA will not allow international shipping companies to pollute Australian waters without consequence.

Currently 60 containers have been identified, five containers have been recovered while a further 16 are still missing.

AMSA signed a AUD15 million contract with Ardent in December 2019 to carry out clean-up operations for the 60 containers. Work will start in March and is expected to be completed within a month, reports Singapore's Splash 247.
