Falkland Islands main sea terminal, FIPASS, (Falklands Interim Port and Storage System) this week resumed normal activity after the incident in which the trawler Pesca Vaqueiro collided with the dock on September 5.
The reefer trawler Pesca Vaqueiro suffered serious damages to its bow when it rammed while berthing at FIPASS, in Stanley, Falkland Islands. The incident occurred early Thursday and the port facilities (Falkland Interim Port and Storage System) were closed for a few hours.
The Spanish trawler “Pesca Vaqueiro” arrived in Montevideo on Wednesday with the thirty crew members rescued from the Chinese jigger which was involved in a collision incident with the Spanish vessel last Friday.
A Chinese flagged jigger sank after colliding with a Spanish flagged trawler on Friday morning to the northwest of the Falkland Islands. All thirty crew members have been rescued by other fishing vessels, and are heading for Montevideo, according to the latest reports from the Argentine Coast Guard. The collision involved the jigger V Zhong Yuan Yu 11 and the trawler Pesca Vaqueiro, which went undamaged.
