Further to our Casualty Advice of 7th March 2018, we confirm that we have received instructions in respect of a number of substantial cargo interests onboard MAERSK HONAM.

We understand that SMIT and Ardent are co-contracted under Lloyd’s Open Form and that SCOPIC has been invoked.

We are in contact with Salvors and their legal representatives, and are liaising with other cargo interests in the retention of fire experts to investigate causation. Meanwhile, our surveyors are on standby to attend once port of refuge has been confirmed.

Shipowners have also appointed solicitors and we expect GA to be declared.

As appropriate, please contact:

United Kingdom – Paul Friett

Hong Kong – Wendy Lee

Singapore – Paul Sansom

USA – Charles Droll

Australia – Robert Hammersley

If this or future casualty notices should be forwarded to any of your colleagues, we would be pleased to receive their contact details and we will add them to our Client List.
