Casualty type Engine Failure
Vessel Type Container Carrier - VT UCC

* We have received reports that container ship, SUSAN BORCHARD experienced an engine failure at Castellon, Spain on 15 December 2022.

* The crew were unable to effect repairs at Castellon. Consequently, the vessel was later under tow by tug on 23 December 2022 towards Seville, Spain, presumably for repairs, with an ETA at Seville on 28 December 2022.

* It is possible that shipowners may declare General Average as a consequence of the casualty. If so, General Average security may be required from all Cargo Interests prior to the delivery of their cargo and we are likely to be able to assist in that regard.

* It is also possible that Recovery issues may arise as a result of any delay in delivery of temperature sensitive and/or time sensitive cargo.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
