We have learned of an incident involving the vessel ONE APUS, a Japan flag, 2019 built, 146,694gt, fully cellular containership, which encountered severe weather conditions in the Pacific Ocean off the US coast, 1,600 nautical miles north west of Hawaii, causing the vessel to roll, resulting in collapse of stow and a significant number of containers being lost overboard.

The Master diverted ONE APUS to ensure the continued safety of the crew and ship until conditions eased. A notification was sent to the USCG in Honolulu, and NYK Shipmanagement is coordinating with stakeholders to find a port of refuge for the vessel to assess any damages and determine the numbers of containers lost. A full investigation will be conducted into this incident in conjunction with the Flag State and the relevant maritime authorities.
