|Today's SotD post regards a special occasion near the Port of Rotterdam. Last night the vessels MSC Nikita (IMO: 7820942, Port of Registry: Panama), bound for Antwerp and Nirint Pride (IMO: 9214575, Port of Registry: Douglas, Isle of Man) collided into each other at the intersection point of the shipping lane outward from Rotterdam and the shipping lane for southbound traffic, also called the 'roundabout'. The MSC Nikita suffered heavy damage near the engine room where a large breach in the hull was found. On the Nirint Pride a fire broke out. After extinquishing the fire, the Nirint Pride was able to return to the port of Rotterdam on her own power where she is currently located at Moerdijk. On crew member of the Nirint Pride had to be taken to a hospital with breathing problems. On board the MSC Nikita were no casualties. All crewmembers have been evacuated from the ship and she has been towed to a safe area where the vessel will not cause problems for vessel traffic. At the collision three containers were lost in sea.|

The Dena arrived last night at the Euro Tank Terminal, Rotterdam for loading fuel oil. The Dena was already in port Rotterdam a week ago for discharging crude oil. As seen often lately, these large tankers will load fuel oil when fully discharged as profit possibilities in the fuel oil market are high at the moment. Another NITC vessel, the Hengam will do the same. After discharging her load of crude oil bit by bit in the last month, the vessel will now enter the port of Rotterdam this afternoon for loading fuel oil at the ship-to-ship bolders in the Calandkanaal.

Today's ship of the day is the recently delivered MSC Daniela (IMO: 9399014, Port of Registry: Panama). This container vessel is 366 meters long and 51 meters wide. Due to her design with the superstructure midships, she is capable of transporting about 14,000 TEU, more than Maersk's PS-class (amongst which is the Emma Maersk). One can argue about the looks of this vessel, however the design ensures for better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. The main engine of the container ship is MAN B&W 12K98MC-C with full output power of 72,240 kW. This power is enough for the ship to reach maximum speed of 25 knots. The MSC Daniela is operated by Mediterranean Shipping Company on their Far-East to Europe loop.
The MSC Daniela will arrive this morning at the ECT Delta terminal, Rotterdam from Felixstowe and will depart tomorrow.
