MPA Singapore bulk carrier reportedly robbed

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore’s (MPA) Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) was alerted of an alleged incidence of maritime theft.

The theft allegedly took place onboard a Marshall Islands-flagged bulk carrier in the Malacca Strait, outside Singapore’s territorial waters.

The suspected heist occurred when the ship was its way to Singapore. The MRCC had ordered the vessel to anchor off the western coast of Singapore to allow the Police Coast Guard to conduct a search.

Onboard, the search has been concluded, and no one has been reported missing.

The shipmaster, who was injured in the incident, is said to be in stable condition and has been sent onshore for medical care.

In September, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, MPA, and 20 partners in the Green & Digital Shipping Corridor partnered to reduce emissions from international shipping by 2030.

More recently, MPA issued an Expression of Interest (EOI) requesting financial institutions to submit solutions to expedite the adoption of electric harbour crafts.
