Last week, the ship visited the ECT Delta terminal and discharged all containers with terminus Rotterdam and Hamburg. Containers for Hamburg were loaded on the Ever Utile to continue their journey to Hamburg, according to the port’s authority.

Once the rest of the containers have been unloaded, the ship will not be put in service and will undergo a full inspection.

The damage to the hull is planned to be examined in Dunkirk.
