The Dutch-flagged 2,902 TEU container vessel Maersk Pembroke, which was hit by a fire in August, has been earmarked for dismantling.

“Maersk is applying for all the necessary permissions from the relevant authorities in connection with the intended recycling of the vessel,” a Maersk Line spokesperson confirmed to World Maritime News.

It has not been informed when this approval and subsequent recycling might take place.

The crew of the 1998-built Sub Panamax containership reported the fire in an auxiliary engine on August 22, while some 125 nautical miles South West of Ireland. The ship was en route to Montreal, Canada when the fire erupted.

The fire was doused shortly after and power to the ship was restored, as disclosed earlier.

However, the extent of damage to the ship from the incident was not disclosed.

The boxship was deployed on Maersk Line’s Canada Atlantic Express Service.

Based on the ship’s latest AIS data, the vessel is currently moored in Rotterdam.
