1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: "Hyundai Fortune" (5.500 TEU) SINKS after explosions and fire on: March 22, 2006, 09:32:10 pm
Casualty type: Fire - containers lost overboard

Voyage from/to: Far East ports to Europe

Casualty Date: 21.3.2006

Vessel Type: Container vessel

Grt: 64054

Built: 1996

Cargo: Containers


22.3.2006 - Update
We are already instructed by a number of cargo interests.

Rumours of the vessel sinking are, we understand, untrue.

Salvors are still en route but the fire has now spread from the stern to forward of the accomodation block. More cargoes will be a CTL as a result.

The vessel has 5100 TEU on board and it appears the fire and explosion started in the cargo space to the stern of the vessel. There is currently a gaping hole in the hull above the waterline.

It appears early reports of a possible terrorist attack are unlikely to be true.

We have retained an experienced fire expert to attend on site once the vessel has been salved. This will be important in order to determine the risks and dangers endured by salvage services (with a view to challenging salvors’ demands if appropriate) and also to confirm the cause of the fire and the effectiveness of the fire fighting operations in respect of the recovery claim.

Fowairet is no more grounded, she is underway to Vlissingen.
