At 1428hrs today (9 February 2019), there was a collision between Greece-registered bulk carrier PIRAEUS and Malaysia vessel POLARIS in Singapore Territorial Waters within Singapore Port Limits off Tuas. 

PIRAEUS was on its way from Singapore to its next port of call at Tanjung Pelepas when the collision took place. 

MPA is deeply concerned that the presence of the unauthorised vessels in our port limits can cause confusion for the international shipping community and threaten navigational safety in our waters. 

MPA is investigating the incident.
