The 2,474 TEU – 207m Container Vessel struck the pier at Marsa Maroc container terminal during berthing manoeuvres with Pilot on board. The transom shell plating was breached and heavily deformed, with internals in way of steering gear room and aft peak tank along with associated outfitting variously affected.

Our Gibraltar Office urgently mobilized a Surveyor who swiftly attended on board one day after notification, for ascertaining the extent of damage and nature of repairs thereof, on behalf of H&M Underwriters.

Vessel was granted single passage permission and shifted by her own means to Algeciras, where renewal of some 23 MT of steel was carried out afloat, under constant monitoring of our Gibraltar Office Surveyors.
