Port of Refuge Still Denied MSC Flaminia

Press Release
Friday, August 10, 2012

Ship operator's latest report says fire remains under control although hotspots still exist.

The ship's geographical situation remains unchanged, some 200 miles off the nearest land.

Helmut Ponath, CEO of Reederei NSB comments: “I consider it shocking that in this situation a ship under German flag does not receive a permission from the European countries to call at a port.”

Without such a permission, which can only be given by European coastal states, the salvage of the vessel is not possible and the success of the operation is compromised.

Currently, intense negotiations are being conducted with all littoral states. The ship managers also remains in constant contact with German authorities in order to make use of all possibilities for continuing the salvage operation.

Thanks to stable weather conditions, salvage and firefighting operations can be continued.

The vessel is listing by 10 degrees.
