The Hellenic Coast Guard reports that the collision took place around 9 p.m. Thursday night in international waters of the eastern Aegean Sea, north-northwest of Chios, Greece.

The incident involved Vanuatu-flagged ANT, with thirteen foreign crew, and the Singapore-flagged cargo ship Potentia, with nineteen on board.

Several assets were sent to the scene, including several patrol boats, a Greek Navy ship, multiple helicopters and an Air Force aircraft.

Ant is owned by Turkey-based Ant Shipping and Trading, according to Equasis data. The ship was recently inspected in Egypt on May 30, with the inspection revealing that the ship had a malfunctioning bridge navigation watch alarm system.
