Tracking data from MarineTraffic shows that the stricken 13,800 teu  MSC Daniela has moved to dock at Colombo International Container Terminal.

A severe fire 10 days ago forced the ship to reroute towards Sri Lanka. The blaze in the aft of the ship started in one container and spread to others. It took five ships more than 12 hours to extinguish the fire and the damaged boxes were sprayed with waters for the following nine days to cool down while the vessel stayed at Colombo’s outer anchorage.

Surveyors and inspectors will now board the ship to assess the damage of the 2008-built vessel.

    All containers are unloaded & i think it has moved to different ships or still at the Colombo port. But damaged containers are still with the ship.
