Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and the owners of seven “C-series” container ships are seeking damages of ¥13.8 billion ($135 million) from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in connection with the MOL Comfort incident.
The 8,000-TEU MOL Comfort split in two and sank off the coast of Yemen in June as it sailed from Singapore to Jeddah.
There were no injuries to the crew, but both halves of the ship sank and all cargo was lost.
