Post-quake Situation concerning MOL-operated Vessels after the Tohoku district - off the Pacific Ocean Earthquake

TOKYO - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today reported that we are still gathering data concerning MOL-operated vessels that may have been affected by the Tohoku district - off the Pacific Ocean earthquake, but neither the quake itself nor the resultant tsunami caused any significant maritime accidents involving MOL-operated vessels.

However, the MOL-chartered C.S. Victory (Flag: Panama, 20,212 Gross Ton), was carried toward the breakwater by the tsunami and now rests on the bottom of the shallow harbor at Ishinomaki (Miyagi prefecture). All the crew members left the vessel on orders of the harbor master, and none were injured. None of the cargo (kaolin) or fuel oil has spilled from the vessel.
