Here’s latest Maritime Herald fake story:
UASC mega container ship UMM Salal aground in Malacca Strait
April 7, 2017
UMM SalalThe UASC giant container ship UMM Salal ran aground in Malacca Strait on 2 nautical miles off Port Klang in Malaysia. The accident happened shortly after boxship left the Malaysian port in the early afternoon of April 7 en route to Khor Fakkan in UAE. The vessel activated AIS status “Aground” near the shipping way and the separation scheme in the heavy traffic area. There are no additional details for the accident and no official statement from the local authorities for the salvage operation. The traffic in the area is not hampered, but the vessel was proceeding with increased cautious due to troubled mega container ship. A few hours later, the vessel was refloated by Malaysian supply vessel Spica and headed by own power to the anchorage near the grounding side, where will be surveyed and inspected.
Maritime Herald requested UASC and local authorities to comment and provide more details on the incident, but the company is yet to reply. We will keep you updated with the latest status of the grounding and more news accordingly.
Vessel didn’t run aground “early in the afternoon” Apr 7, she grounded in the morning Apr 6. And of course, vessel wasn’t grounded “on 2 nautical miles off Port Klang”, vessel was more than 15 nm off Port Klang entrance. And there’s new pattern in Maritime Herald trash, emerging recently, namely: Maritime Herald requested UASC and local authorities to comment and provide more details – Bulgarian Scam is including in its’ fake news a new cliché: Maritime Herald requested UASC and local authorities. They didn’t “request” and couldn’t, that scum can only steal, falsify and lie.
As usual, that grounding “news” is a masterpiece of illiteracy and ignorance, full of factual and language mistakes.
Nevertheless, by now I figured at least three industry media, which take Maritime Herald fake news for granted. It’s security (!) website ASKET; it’s Ships and Bunker; and latest, Port Technology:
The accident happened 2 nautical miles from Port Klang in the Malacca Strait after the 366 metre boxship left the port in the early afternoon of April 7, 2017, on its way to Khor Fakkan in United Arab Emirates.
The vessel was refloated and made its way to Port Klang, one of the world's busiest ports, without disrupting traffic in the area.
It tells professionals not as much of Maritime Herald, as of professionalism of abovementioned industry media editorial staff.
