The 129 meter long, 8260 dwt container ship Pantonio collided with the 366 meter long CMA CGM Alaska at the entrance to the Maas River near Hoek van Holland, Netherlands. The Pantonio suffered damage to its bow while the CMA CGM Alaska suffered damage including a gash at the waterline. The collision was caused when the Pantonio suffered a power blackout and lost steering. Both vessels returned to the Caland Canal. No one was injured and no reports of pollution being released.
