A CLEAN-UP operation to limit possible environmental damage is underway at Walvis Bay after two vessels collided in the harbour on Friday night. About 100 tonnes of heavy fuel (HFO) and diesel spilled into the sea.


The Umfolozi, carrying some 335 tonnes of fuel oil, was struck on her starboard side, ripping a large hole in the wing fuel tanks.

There was no loss of life or injury reported on either ship.
