Video: Octbreeze Island collides with Ghetty Bottiglieri off San Pedro

16 Dec 2014

Octbreeze Island collided with the Ghetty Bottiglieri tanker оn December 13th at 20:39 UTC at about 285 km off San Pedro on theParaná River.

The Octbreeze Island sustained damage in its port side which resulted in a roughly 6 meter breach. The hull was torn open in the fuel tanks area which caused some fuel leakage. Ghetti Bottiglieri’s bow was shattered in the incident.

Both ships were anchored near the place of collision, while the company Cintra, which was tasked to take care of the situation, laid out 400 meters of oil booms in order to contain the spillage.

The Coast Guard managed the navigation process after the accident. Officials were able to contain the oil spill, at least partially, about 500 meters downstream of the collision site. The Octbreeze Island was sailing down the river, heading to Nueva Palmira. The Ghetty Bottiglieri was making its way up the river en route to San Lorenzo, Santa Fe. At the time of the collision, there was a severe storm in the area. 

Octbreeze Island (IMO number 9597587 and MMSI 477535900) was built in 2011 and is registered in Hong Kong. The 174-metre bulk carrier has a deadweight of 38,278-DWT.

Ghetty Bottiglieri (IMO number 9232034 and MMSI 247063100) was built in 2002 and is registered in Italy. The 169-metre tanker has a deadweight of 40,165-DWT.
