Container ship MAERSK HONAM Update Mar 29
As of 22000 UTC Mar 28, MAERSK HONAM and tugs engaged in salvage were in vicinity 22 15N 063 25E, with almost no visible towage progress – caravan in 4,5 days covered mere 50 nm in western direction, doing some legs on the way. So it’s still a long way to Jebel Ali, more than 650 nm. It isn’t known what is causing delays and such slow progress, there may be a number of reasons, from MAERSK HONAM being still to risky to be taken to port, to probable lack of guaranteed shelter agreement.
