Fire on board VLCC off Sri Lanka under control
The fire on board the very large crude carrier New Diamond was extinguished on Sunday. However, the Sri Lankan Navy cautioned that there is a risk of another fire erupting owing to the heat of the ship’s iron plates
No oil spill has been reported as the fire remains localised and the cargo hold is safe. Salvage specialists and assessors are now in Sri Lanka and will assess the damage and decide on the next course of action
