VLOC Vale Beijing in trouble?

There is a problem with mega bulk carrier Vale Beijing, it seems that vessel suffered cracks in the hull and resulting water ingress, vessel presently is in Ponta da Madeira port, Brazil, reported on Dec 5 2011 Bloomberg. Probably the trouble is more serious than it looks like, vessel is brand new and was delivered to manager, STX Pan Ocean (STX), on Sept 27 this year, so maybe it’s not some kind of an accident, but construction flaw. VLOC Vale Beijing IMO 9575448, dwt 404389, built 2011, flag Marshall Islands.
