A Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) containership that suffered an engine room fire off the coast of Sri Lanka in late June has arrived in Singapore for repairs.

The fire aboard the 4,743-teu MSC Messina (built 1995) occurred on 25 June 2021 in the Bay of Bengal, while the ship was enroute from Sri Lanka to Singapore.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) confirmed that the Liberia-registered containership had arrived in the city state.
