Maersk readies Dyros for discharge end of next week


A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has announced discharge operations have commenced on its Dyros vessel.

According to the shipping line, the team working the ship in Lazaro Cardenas have worked diligently over the weekend and will continue to progress to complete operations by the end of next week.

Several containers have already been unloaded off the 4,578 TEU box ship.

“After the final vessel inspection is completed, we will further communicate on next steps, but our intention is to sail back to Seattle to unload remaining cargo. Given the congestion in the area, we are actively having discussions and working on opportunities to secure a berth window,” said Maersk in a recent customer advisory.

The company’s intention is to sail the ship back to Seattle to unload the remaining cargo. However, due to on-going congestion in the area, Maersk is still working on securing a berth window.

“We will have more specific details on the extent of damaged containers, the amount of time required to fix the vessel, if needed, and determine the cargo contingency options next week,” continued the Danish line.

On 21 March, the vessel lost around 90 containers in the North Pacific Ocean due to rough weather conditions.

Approximately another 100 containers were damaged, but no crew members were injured.
