Norwegian LNG transportation provider Awilco said its liquefied natural gas carrier WilForce was struck by another vessel off Singapore.
No crew injuries or spills have been reported onboard the WilForce, Awilco said in its statement.
The vessel is now en route to the yard in Singapore for class inspection and hull repairs. It is currently unclear how long the vessel will be offhire.
The vessel has full insurance cover for repair expenses and loss of hire, subject to a deductible.
Based on a preliminary assessment of facts Awilco LNG holds the other vessel fully and completely liable for the collision, and the company expects to recover all costs, losses and expenses including deductibles in due course.
WilForce is a TDFE liquefied natural gas carrier built and delivered to Awilco by the South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) in 2013, capable of transporting 156,007 cubic meters of LNG.
