* The vessel later arrived at Port Klang anchorage on 27 September 2022.

* It is initially reported that approximately 72 containers may have been lost overboard and other containers stowed on deck may have sustained damage as a consequence of the movement of containers stowed on deck.

* Other cargo stowed below deck may also have sustained wet damage as a result of the entry of sea water to the cargo holds as a consequence of damage to the vessel's hatch covers.

* It is possible that General Average and Recovery issues may arise as a result of this casualty.

* We have already been instructed by certain cargo insurers and we may be able to offer certain economies of scale in respect of any third party costs which may need to be incurred.
