The MT Carla Maersk sits in a Bahamas dry dock on May 5, 2015 for repairs following a collision with the Conti Peridot bulk carrier in the Houston Ship Channel on March 9th. The photos below give you a good idea of the extent of damage sustained by the vessel.
The Carla Maersk ended up spilling an unknown quantity of the toxic fuel additive MTBE, closing the Channel for three full days. The collision also caused damage to the Conti Peridot.
We’re told the Conti Peridot will follow in the same dry dock once this job finished.
