Höegh Transporter in Mombasa, Kenya - Update

22 September 2015

The crew of Höegh Transporter are working closely with investigators.

The crew of the Höegh Transporter is continuing to work closely with investigators in the Port of Mombasa, Kenya as they conduct a thorough search of the vessel.

After berthing on 17 September 2015, the vessel was boarded by Kenyan authorities who requested to inspect the cargo to be discharged. Throughout this investigation our Chinese crew have remained on board, provided assistance and monitored the investigation.

We cannot speculate on the ongoing operation and cannot comment on rumours associated with the search.

We look forward to the speedy completion of the search so that our vessel can resume her sailing schedule.
