A container vessel, the Seaspan New Delhi, has been detained at Hutchison Terminal, Port Botany following an MUA safety blitz


A container vessel, the Seaspan New Delhi, has been detained at Hutchison Terminal, Port Botany following an MUA safety blitz. The union investigation uncovered serious safety and engineering deficiencies on the Hong Kong registered ship, including severe fall from height risks, inadequate fencing, rusted out walkways, busted hatch covers, and other safety breaches. Members will not be unloading this vessel for as long as it takes for remedial work to be completed, likely to be several days at least. More to follow
