New York Oil Spill - Hole in Ship's Hull Sealed

Hapag-Lloyd has confirmed that hole in the hull of Dublin Express that has been leaking oil at Global Marine New York Container Terminal has now been sealed.

Fuel was escaping from the roughly 40 x 40-centimeter (15 square inch) opening. The 4,120 TEU container ship encountered heavy swell while sailing from Port Everglades to New York.

The U.S. Coast Guard confirms that containment booms were promptly set out to contain the spill and proactively protect nearby nature reserves. 

After initially closing the waterway to navigable vessel traffic, the Captain of the Port re-opened the waterway on Friday, with a slow bell requiring maritime traffic moving through the waterway with no wake.

Commercial oil spill recovery organizations are on scene, but an estimate of the volume of fuel spilt has not yet been made public.

The Unified Command has deployed 60 responders, 10 vessels, four skimmers, two vacuum trucks, two vacuum trailers for recovered oil product, and 15,000 feet of containment boom in response to the incident.
