A new video obtained by Tradewinds shows the moment a Stolt tanker exploded while preparing for a ship-to-ship cargo transfer in Busan, South Korea last weekend.

Stolt Tankers has said the explosion occurred as the ship was berthed at Yeompo Quay in the port of Ulsan, South Korea.

Another tanker, the Bow Dolian, was alongside at the time of blast. Its operator Odfjell said the ships were preparing for ship-to-ship cargo transfer from Stolt Groenland to Bow Dalian and cargo operations had not yet commenced when the explosion occurred.

A video of the blast filmed from a car on the bridge overlooking the incident went viral on social media (see related article below to watch viral video).
