Update (No.19): Incident Involving the Containership MOL Comfort

TOKYO- Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) updates the status of the containership MOL Comfort. The vessel could not continue sailing under its own power from June 17 because the hull fractured in 2 parts while under way on the Indian Ocean.  The fore part is being towed by a tug boat arranged by the salvage company.  

 The tug boat reported that a fire broke out from the rear end of the fore part around 0030UTC (0930 JST) on July 6. We immediately requested the salvage company to start fire fighting. The tug boat and other two rescue boats are responding to the fire at the scene.
