    On 16 March 2011, the bulker OLIVA flagged in Malta, managed by Dryships Greece, owned by Cardiff Marineand crewed by 1 Greek and 21 Philippinos went aground on Nightingale Island in the South Atlantic, while on a voyage from Santos, Brazilto China with a cargo of soya beans. The vessel broke in two and was a total loss. All 22 crew were rescued. More than 800 tons of sticky black fuel oilleaked from the ship and coated some 20,000 Northern Rockhopper Penguins.
