Two bulk carries, Catherine (Maltese flagged) and Baru Satu (Panamanian flagged), on July 3 collided in the Aegean Sea in the Strait Kafirea, seven nautical miles south-west of Andros.
The Ships have remained locked after the collision and there are no reports of a bunker spill as a result of the incident.
Damage to the cargo ship Catherine resulted in water ingress through a hole on the port side, while Baru Satu suffered bow damage, also resulting in water ingress.
Post- ship collision, a video of the ships was put online, revealing the dilapidated condition of the ships.
Nine of the 23 crew members of the CATHERINE boarded on a port police float boat and were transferred to Karystos for safety reasons. No crew members of both the ships have been injured.
