Dec 8 UPDATE: ONE APUS reached Kobe, berthed.

Dec 7 UPDATE from ship’s manager:
Singapore, December 7, 2020. Update No 5.
Chidori Ship Holding LLC as owners and NYK Shipmanagement Pte Ltd as managers of the container vessel ONE Apus (IMO# 9806079) can now confirm the contents of the estimated 64 Dangerous Goods containers, which were among 1,816 units lost overboard after the vessel encountered severe weather on Monday, November 30, 2020,
54 of the DG containers carry fireworks whilst a further eight hold batteries, and two contain liquid ethanol. A notification was sent to the JRCC in Honolulu and Guam with maritime navigational warnings subsequently broadcast. We are continuing to liaise with the JRCC in Honolulu, who has advised that there have not been sightings of any containers as yet.
The vessel is cautiously proceeding to the port of Kobe, Japan with an ETB of 1200LT on December 8, subject to all operations proceeding as planned. The priority remains on getting the ship and crew safely to port. Once berthed, it’s expected to take some time to offload the dislodged containers that remain on board. Then, a thorough assessment will be made on the exact number and type of containers that have been lost or damaged.
Once the ONE Apus is in port and deemed safe, a full investigation will be conducted into this incident in conjunction with the Flag State and the relevant maritime authorities.
