Further to our initial notice of 18th February, it is reported that MAERSK EINDHOVEN is awaiting clearance from Japanese authorities for entry into APM Terminals Yokohama, Japan container terminal, currently expected to proceed on/about 25th February and likely to berth on/about 1st March.

Maersk surveyors have been onboard with salvors, inspecting the vessel and reviewing safety conditions. It is reported that damage to Vessel is very limited, so declaration of General Average seems very unlikely. Maersk anticipate being able to share more details in the coming days.
