As soon as 7.9 billion times departed,’Oh uh’… Taiwanese citizens surprised by the tilting 700-ton fishing boat
[아시아경제 최은영 기자] A 700t class fishing vessel in Taiwan leaned and collapsed in the sea during a launch ceremony for the first time a ship built at a shipyard was afloat. In this accident, part of the ship was submerged, but it was confirmed that there was no human injury.
On the 28th (local time), according to local media in Taiwan, at the launch ceremony held around 11 am the previous day, Seongpan No.188 (BI2678), built at the Sanyang Shipyard (SYSBC) in southern Kaohsiung, lost its center and fell to the left and flooded. done
Not long after shipyard officials sent the ship to the sea, the hull lost its center of gravity and tilted, and a part of the ship was submerged in water, and many citizens who watched the scene at the time were surprised by making a ‘ooh-o’ sound.
Fortunately, as soon as the Kaohsiung Port Police, who were waiting for the launching guard, received the report, they immediately dispatched to the scene, and it was confirmed that there was no human injury by mobilizing four tugboats to tow the ship back to the dock of the shipyard in an hour.
The Port Authority of the Ministry of Transportation (MOTC) said that it was a CT7-type deep-sea tuna fishing boat with a 500 to 1,000 ton class of accident fishing vessels that began construction at the beginning of last year, and that it is currently being repaired due to an accident that occurred during the launching ceremony.
However, the ship, which was built with an investment of 200 million Taiwan dollars (about 7.9 billion won), was disrupted by the voyage plan scheduled for April. Shipbuilding industry officials are speculating whether it is a ballast tank (tank containing ballast water) that balances the ship.
