MOL Comfort disaster (follow up)
Information notice N°5


The MOL Competence, sister ship of the giant container ship that snapped in two in the Arabian Sea on June 17, is still in the vicinity of the port of Le Havre, France. She is looping around in circles.

At the same time, as a precautionary measure, the ship-owner Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has decided to strengthen the hull structure of the container ships of the same serie as soon as possible. The ships will be temporarily taken out of service and the rotations of the MOL container ships will obviously be rearranged

Question: Under these conditions, should the MOL Competence return to Japan following her routine course with thousands of containers on board, including several hundred loaded with hazardous goods?
