Cargo discharge operations on Maersk Line’s fire-stricken containership Maersk Honam were completed and first containers have been released for onward transport.

The ultra large boxship, which was hit by a serious fire on March 6, berthed at Jebel Ali port on Sunday, 27 May, after spending over two months at sea.

“Containers which have been declared sound and for which all General Average and Salvage securities have been submitted are being released now and will be loaded on other vessels for transport to their final destination,” the Danish shipping major said in a statement.

The company added that the condition of the vessel will be further evaluated after berthing, confirming its earlier announced plans to repair the Maersk Honam.

A full investigation in collaboration with relevant authorities is ongoing to determine the cause of the fire.

Maersk Honam was hit by a serious fire while sailing around 900 nautical miles southeast of Salalah, Oman. The fire claimed the lives of a total of five crew members.
