SHIPPING, which fell into the sea after two containerships collided in Karachi Port, have yet to be recovered, Pakistan's Geo TV News reports.
The South Asia Port Terminal (SAPT) will open for traffic once the containers, which were carrying imported cars and general freight have been recovered from the bottom.
The ships have been docked at Karachi Port and the damage will also be repaired after Hapag-Lloyd's 8,000-TEU Tolten collided with the 6,350-TEU Hamburg Bay at South Asia Port Terminal.
No damage was done to the cranes, though dock operations at the SAPT were suspended, but will resume after the containers are salvaged from the sea.
Judging from witness accounts the collision happened when Tolten was maneuvering on arrival. More than 10 containers, some of them damaged, fell overboard. Three tugs attended.
