The following is an authorized release in regard to an incident that occurred at 11:34 New Eden Standard Time, on YC119.8.2, aboard the UNF administrated raitaru class engineering complex, Virtrupets Orbital Waystation, in the system of Eugales.
An unregistered Hoarder class industrial vessel entered hangar 15 under false pretense of docking and refitting, and opened fire with a set of dual 180mm autocannons with what is assumed to be Hail munitions, sweeping its arc of fire across several loading platforms and bulkheads, causing rapid depressurization of hangar 15 and the adjacent hangar 14, as well as damaging a series of power couplings connected several critical systems within the surrounding section.
After depleting its autocannon magazines, the vessel proceeded to attempt undocking, but was immobilized by automated internal security installations before it could reach an docking tube. Following immobilization, the vessel detonated itself within the egress channel with yield equivalent to a ship grade Shrapnel Bomb, heavily damaging the egress channel, rendering docking tubes 3 and 4 inaccessible. Docking tubes 1 and 2 remain accessible and unaffected.
The surviving wreckage of the Hoarder class industrial, and its navigational computer are being analyzed for any identifying markings and data to track down its origin point.
Casualties: 641 baseliner facility personnel critically injured, 27 baseliner facility personnel killed.
Estimated cost of repairs: 73,408,266 isk
Despite this incident, the Waystation will retain its Freeport designation.
