- May 30, 2018-

maersk-honam-2.jpgThe remaining hotspots on board were extinguished last week and the vessel is reported to be stable.

“The discharge operations have commenced and are estimated to last approx. four to six days, all going well,” Maersk Line said in a statement.

Now that the ship has finally berthed, its condition will be inspected and damages fully evaluated.

As pointed out earlier, the company plans to repair the ship.

The berthing and discharging operations of the fire-ravaged boxship are expected to result in high extraordinary costs, as confirmed by Maersk Line.

The company has declared General Average, under which all parties with a financial interest in the voyage are to proportionally share the losses resulting from the incident.

A full investigation in collaboration to determine the cause of the fire is underway.

Cargo cranes – Shipboard cranes of various types and capacities are still required for multi-purpose cargo Project-Cargo-Handling-3_meitu_4.jpgvessels, geared bulk carriers, feeders, reefers, heavy lift vessels and some forest product carriers. Manufactures offer crane designs and special handling attachments (container spreaders, rotators and grabs) to suit all dry cargo trades.
Cargo spotting systems enable even relatively unskilled operators to cope with the pendulum effects and centrifugal forces. They also help in keeping containers or other cargo units constantly aligned with a given axis, regardless of slewing motion and other external forces. Such electronic aids substantially improve productivity. Other benefits include: reduced operator fatigue, improved safety and lower cargo and ship structure damage.
