Höegh Osaka -update

5 January 2015

Update from today.

We confirm that Svitzer has been appointed as the salvors for Höegh Osaka and that a salvage team have boarded our vessel to assess the impact of the grounding. Once the assessment is complete, Svitzer will develop a salvage plan that will then be assessed by SOSREP (Secretary of State’s Representative for Maritime Salvage).

There is no evidence that any pollution has occurred, and an environment group has been activated to monitor and advise as necessary.

A Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) investigation into the grounding has been started.
