Four months after a severe blaze ripped through it the Yantian Express boxship has finally reached its Canadian destination, delivering some of the containers that survived the fire.
The Hapag-Lloyd vessel arrived in the Port of Halifax on the eastern seaboard of Canada yesterday, having spent nearly four months in the Bahamas. The ship caught fire on January 3 this year in the Atlantic while bound for Halifax.
In total, 260 containers were destroyed from the two week-long fire on the 7,500 teu ship, with another 460 damaged and the contents in many reefers were also spoiled when power was lost.
The vessel will now head for China for repairs.
