A fire that reportedly broke out on an Indonesia-flagged tanker dubbed the Rosa Dini, berthed at Jurong Port Tank Terminals in Singapore (popular as the JPTT), has been successfully extinguished, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (abbreviated the MPA) informed on Wednesday.
The tanker last discharged 18,000 tons of gasoline in Indonesia on 9 June, before reaching Singapore on 11 June, per shipping data from Refinitiv Eikon.
The fire was reported to the MPA first at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday and extinguished at 9:25 a.m. on Wednesday, the MPA informed. There were zero casualties or damages to the berth and tanks at the terminal.
Post operations and vessel traffic in the area haven’t been impacted, while the operations at the adjacent berths have halted, and a close-by vessel at the berth was moved to anchorage, it revealed.
An examination into this incident and the cause behind the fire is underway, an MPA spokesperson mentioned.
