Singapore - A containership identified as Cyprus-registered "Tina I" ran aground in the Singapore Strait on Sunday, November 22 after hitting an Iranian vessel grounded in the area since May. The 2004-built "Tina I" rammed into the stern of the 2008-built "Shahraz", a boxship controlled by Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines.

The ship, which was reportedly underway from Singapore to Jakarta, loaded with containers, had 20 crew members on board who were declared safe. The Indonesian Ministry of Transport said that after it inspected the scene it did not find any leaks or spills around the ship. Data from VesselsValues shows that the Post Panamax containership is owned by Greece-based Technomar Shipping and it has been chartered out to Moller Maersk until March 2021.

The market value of the ship is $ 14.6 million. The ministry said it had deployed rescue boats to the location to monitor the situation. Local reports indicate that the crew was evacuated from the Greek containership. As Offshore Energy – Green Marine reported, "Shahraz" was involved in a double grounding incident on "Many 11" together with Indonesian-registered bulk carrier "Samudra Sakti I" at Batu Berhanti within Indonesian territorial waters.
