Two marine engines that were supposed to be one engine each, a single motor, have been blown up in the sea by the explosion of a solo motor engine.
The explosion happened at the Raffles Reef Marine Park in Singapore, with an explosion of approximately 100 kilotons.
According to the Singapore Maritime Authority, the two engines are still afloat, but they are in critical condition.
Two of the engines were found in a flooded bay, while the other two were still in the water.
The explosion happened in the early hours of Wednesday, May 12, when a single marine engine was in the process of being turned off for maintenance.
When the engine went off, a cloud of smoke and flames engulfed the vessel.
The engine exploded in a cloud that was a hundred metres long and 50 metres wide.
The Singapore Maritime Commission said that the engine was damaged beyond repair, but that no one was seriously injured in the incident.
The Singapore Maritime Association (SMAA) said the explosion was a “very rare” occurrence.
The SMAA said the cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
