Further to yesterday’s update, the NYK THEMIS has moved berths to allow a mobile crane to remove the broken boom from the vessel.  The injured crane operator, though badly injured, is now recovering in hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Further inspections of the vessel and decisions on how to remove the boom are due to take place today, before which it is impossible to forecast accurately when the vessel will resume her EU1 schedule, although no port omissions are planned currently.

From an initial visual inspection carried out yesterday, it would appear that around twenty-seven containers have been damaged.  Cargo owners of these containers will be contacted separately by their local NYK office with regard to the condition of their cargo and the survey procedures.

As shipside operations at DP World Southampton resumed last night, all Grand Alliance vessels due to call there this week are currently still scheduled to do so.  This includes the NYK VEGA (EU2 export) due to berth Thu 16th, NYK VESTA (EU3 import and export) Fri 17th and COLOMBO EXPRESS (EU4 import and export) Sun 19th July.
