A video published by Freediver HD via YouTube shows a containership ripping apart and spilling oil, the event took place recently off of the coast of Taipei, Taiwan.
Around three shipping containers are shown on the seafront following an engine failure on a containership, which led to a major oil spillage.
These kinds of issues often occur as a result of a containership being over-loaded, which is in line with the need for the upcoming SOLAS container weighing rule.
From July 1, 2016 the container weighing rule is set to come into effect, in which shippers will be responsible for the weighing of containers before they are loaded onto a ship.
