MV ONE APUS serving in Ocean Network Express’ Far East Pacific 2 (FP2) Service suffered collapsed containers due to severe weather conditions while the vessel was enroute to her next port of call, Long Beach. Investigations are ongoing and further information will be provided once available.
The vessel schedule is expected to be delayed and her schedule recovery plan is currently underway which will be advised subsequently.
Ocean Network Express (ONE) is currently assisting owners and managers of container ship ONE APUS (IMO: 9806079; Japan flag) with investigations into the loss of containers overboard during severe inclement weather on 30 November 2020 as the vessel was transiting the Pacific Ocean.
ONE APUS was en route from Yantian, China to Long Beach, USA when it encountered gale-force winds and large swells around 1,600 nautical miles northwest of Hawaii, USA.
The severe weather conditions caused the vessel to roll heavily resulting in a yet-to-be-determined number of containers to dislodge and fall into the ocean.
