Fire-Hit Maersk Pembroke Sold for Green Recycling in Turkey

The Sub Panamax containership Maersk Pembroke has been sold for green recycling to a yard in Turkey, data from VesselsValue shows.

Based on the provided information, the sale took place at the end of September.

The demolition value of the 1988-built ship was set at USD 4.97 million.

The vessel is yet to reach its final destination, as, based on its latest AIS data, it remains moored in Rotterdam.

The Dutch-flagged 2,902 TEU container vessel, owned by Maersk Line, was earmarked for demolition following a fire in August.

The fire was reported in an auxiliary engine on August 22, while the ship was sailing some 125 nautical miles South West of Ireland. The ship was en route to Montreal, Canada when the fire erupted.
