LPG tanker Navigator Aries and boxship Leo Perdana collided off Surabaya

LPG tanker Navigator Aries collided with boxship Leo Perdana early in the morning June 29 in waters of Karang Jamuang Island, some 20 nm north of Surabaya, East Java.

The tanker suffered large breach in the port side and caught fire, which was quickly extinguished by the crew. 

During the collision there were no injured crew, but both ships were seriously damages and small quantity of fuel spilled into the water.


Four tugs were dispatched at the scene of the accident and towed the Navigator Aries to anchorage on 10 nautical miles off Gresik. The container ship Leo Perdana proceeded to Surabaya by own power and berthed for repair works and inspection. The extent of the damage on the 2,553 TEU Leo Perdana is still unknown.

The Panama-flagged Leo Perdana is operated by Taiwan’s Evergreen Marine Corporation, and is employed on a Taiwan-Philippines-Indonesia (TPI) Service, which includes a call at Surabaya.

The Indonesia-flagged Navigator Aries is managed by the UK-based Navigator Gas LLC.
