London, 20th July 2009

Further to last week’s update, the giant mobile crane is now in place to remove the broken gantry crane boom from the NYK THEMIS.  The injured crane operator, though out of intensive care, remains in a critical but stable condition and we continue to wish him a speedy recovery.

Over the weekend v arious smaller pieces of the collapsed crane including: ladders, platforms, and wires were removed from NYK THEMIS.  The giant 800 tonne crane, with superlift attachment, has been assembled in position to remove the boom of the collapsed crane this evening or tomorrow morning.

On the basis that the above operation goes smoothly, the damaged containers will be discharged within the next two days and the minor repair work necessary to the vessel completed thereafter.

As such the expected date of departure of the NYK THEMIS is either this Thursday 23rd or Friday 24th July.  After departing Southampton she will resume her EU 1 schedule calling Le Havre before proceeding eastwards.

Should you require any further information or have any questions on above please contact your local NYK office or NYK representative.
