On 19 October 2017 the Rotterdam Koole Terminal Rotterdam
was rocked by an explosion which occurred
on board the 2009 built chemical tanker
Atlantic Symphony. The vessel
had arrived into Rotterdam mid October from Port Klang, Malaysia
loaded with a cargo of coconut oil. According
to local reports the tanker had yet to discharge
her cargo when the explosion occurred. At the time of the explosion a fire took hold. An investigation into the cause of the explosion is pending.
