Pyrsos Shipping bulker detained in Zhoushan

Beihai Maritime Court has ordered the detention of bulk carrier Apellis in Fangchenggang Port at the request of Zhoushan Changhong International Shipyard.

Changhong International claimed that it signed a $408,000 contract with Greek owner Pyrsos Shipping for repair works on the Apellis at its yard in Zhoushan. Pyrsos Shipping has already paid $241,000 but has been unable to pay the remaining amount.

In September 2015, Apellis was also detained in Australia over crew labor violations including not paying the crew according to their contracts.
