Danish logistics giant Maersk has filed a lawsuit against commodity trader Glencore Ltd over contaminated bunker fuel supplied to two of its containerships.

Based on the court documents filed on February 5, with the New York District Court, Maersk is seeking compensation worth $6 million for the damages its two vessels suffered in 2018 due to bad bunkers.

The containerships involved are reportedly Maersk Sofia and Maersk Aras which received the fuel in February 2018, in Panama.

Maersk Sofia allegedly suffered a total engine failure, while Maersk Aras suffered pump damage.

Maersk has been reached out for a comment on the lawsuit.
