A Malaysian dredger called Raja Akasia was capsized in Indonesian waters between West Lampung and Bengkulu provinces on Monday after hit by 6 meter-wave, the private news portal reported on Tuesday.

"The dredger carrying 13 crews has been pulled out from Krui Port of West Lampung to Linau Port," said the Indonesian navy base chief commander in Bengkulu province Lieutenant Colonel Sukrisno in Bengkulu on Tuesday, adding that all crews are safe.

He also said that the dredger departed from Banten Sea last Friday to Pulau Baai Port of Bengkulu to dredge access strip at shallow Bengkulu Port.

However, the dredger was hit by 6 meter wave in Indonesia Ocean waters of western Sumatra Island. The ship was out of control and capsized. Luckily, all crews are safe.

"We received information about the accident on Monday afternoon. We dispatched several officers to the location but they were hard to contact due to bad weather," said Sukrisno.
