Two Bulkers Collide in Panama Canal, Investigation Launched

The Panama Canal Authority has launched an investigation into a collision involving two bulkers, which occurred in the morning hours of March 11.

According to media reports, the vessels in question are the 37,700 dwt, 2018-built SE Nicky, and the 63,400 dwt Iolaos, built in 2016.

The units, operated by Taiwan’s Sincere Industrial and Greek Lavinia Corporation, respectively, made contact in front of the locks of Pedro Miguel, according to La Prensa.

However, the collision did not affect ship transits and both vessels continued their transit through the waterway. There were no reports of injuries to the vessels’ crews.

“After attending the case according to security protocols, and as dictated by the operating rules of the Panama Canal, an investigation has been initiated to determine the causes of the incident,” the ACP said via social media.

The vessels were transiting in the same direction. Following the incident both SE Nicky and Iolaos sailed to Panama’s Limon Bay Anchorage. AIS data provided by Marine Traffic shows that Iolaos is still anchored off Colón, while SE Nicky continued its voyage towards Port of Mobile, US.
