Locating containers lost from YM Efficiency

Friday 8 June 2018

On 1 June 2018 a container ship YM Efficiency lost 83 containers in heavy weather about 30 kilometres southeast of Newcastle.

Modelling undertaken by AMSA and weather indicates that most of the remaining containers are likely to have sunk close to the site of the incident between Newcastle and Crowdy Heads.

AMSA is actively investigating options to pinpoint the location of the containers on the sea floor.
