ATTEMPTED PIRATE ATTACK ON STENA BULK VESSEL WEST OF YEMEN

In the beginning of November, Stena Bulk's ship, Stena Imperial, was on its way from Southeast Asia to Rotterdam for unloading. During its northward voyage through the Red Sea west of Yemen, two smaller boats were discovered approaching the ship.

The alarm was sounded for the suspected pirate attack and the captain and security team were gathered on the command deck.Signal rocket launchers were fired as warning shots, but the boats continued to approach. Nearby warships were contacted and another approach was attempted. Signal rockets were fired again. Both ships were then left on course. 

“The crew aboard the Stena Imperial acted very professionally throughout the incident and worked closely with the security guards in order to resolve the situation in the best possible way. We highly value our crew and ensure that they are trained to handle all sorts of situations in a calm and competent manner. Then we can feel assured of their safety onboard,” says Erik Hånell, CEO Stena Bulk.
