On 10 September 2017 the oil tanker Agia Zoni II (1 572 GT) sank while at anchorage west of the port of Piraeus, Greece. The vessel was loaded with 2 200 tonnes of fuel oil and 370 tonnes of marine gas oil. An unconfirmed quantity of the oil has spilled into the sea and the east coast of Salamina Island has been polluted. Clean-up operations are ongoing.
The IOPC Funds have been in contact with the Greek authorities and the insurer of the vessel, as well as other parties involved and is closely monitoring developments.
