We have received reports that the " GLOVIS CORONA ", a 1996 built vehicle carrier flying the Korean flag, has listed on the 26th December and has been taken to the port of Bremerhaven as a port of refuge.
It is reported that a number of heavy vehicles shifted. The vessel was able to move into a safer location yesterday.
It is carrying a cargo of vehicles bound for a number of ports .
It is also possible that General Average will be declared, and we expect there to be some PA damage due to the cargo shift and the reported water entry into some cargo spaces.
So far as any recovery is concerned, we have identified the vessel's P&I Club, which is headquartered in England.
If you would like assistance in dealing with any potential GA claims and recovery of your losses, please do contact us.
