Taipei, March 10 (CNA) A foreign oil and chemical tanker that accidentally collided with Taiwan navy vessel Ning Yang (FF-938) on March 9, signed a document promising to pay full compensation for damages caused, a source familiar with the matter said Sunday.

The Saudi Arabia-registered tanker NCC Sama collided with the Ning Yang as it was entering the Port of Keelung after 1 a.m. on March 9, denting the port side bow. No one was hurt in the incident.

The Chi Yang class frigate was docked when the incident occurred and therefore bears no responsibility, the source said, adding that the persons in charge of NCC Sama signed a compensation agreement Sunday.

The source said the Ning Yang could have sustained damage to its electronic systems and electric wires in addition to the dent, the compensation the Navy asks for will be determined over the next few days after a thorough inspection.    [FULL  STORY]
