The Port of Rotterdam Authority has filed a €28-million ($32.5 million) lawsuit against Norway-based tanker operator Odfjell S.E. related to an oil spill, World Maritime News reported. Odfjell’s chemical tanker Bow Jubail collided with a jetty and spilled more than 200 tons of fuel oil in the Rotterdam port on June 23. Harald Fotland, chief operations officer at Odfjell, said that the tanker operator would compensate the port authority for oil spill-related losses.
