MV Wakashio was under charter to MOL when this 290m bulk carrier ran aground in the Republic of Mauritius, resulting in an oil spill that has had a serious impact on the marine and natural environment, affecting the site, the community, and its industries.

MOL, as the party using the vessel under a charter contract with the shipowner, committed to contributing to a swift recovery from the oil spill and restoration of the environment and community through specific support activities that meet local needs, such as allocation of personnel and provision of supplies and equipment for the collection of the leaked oil.

MOL have handed overĀ  a 40ft shipping container to the non-government organization (NGO) Precious Plastic Mauritius and the opening of the facility made from the refurbished container.
