Malaysian vessel Polaris and Greece-registered bulk carrier collided

SINGAPORE, Feb 9 (NNN- Bernama) � Malaysian vessel Polaris and a Greece-registered bulk carrier were involved in a collision within Singapore Port Limits off Tuas today afternoon, according to Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

The Authority said the incident happened at 1428hrs today.

There was a collision between Greece registered bulk carrier Pireas and Malaysian vessel Polaris in Singapore territorial waters within Singapore Port Limits off Tuas, said MPA in a statement here.
