We have learned of an incident involving the vessel CARAVOS LIBERTY, a Marshall Islands flag, 35,812 gt, 2013 built, bulk carrier, which ran aground on 3 September 2023 near the Indonesian coast approximately 50NM south of Balikpapan.
The bulk carrier with a capacity of 63,500t DWT is operated by Iason Hellenic Shipping Co Ltd and had previously called at Yantai, Luoyuan and Zhapu before sailing to Muara Berau.
