The casualty is under tow towards British territorial waters & permission to enter, thence transit towards German port of Wilhelmshaven.

MSC FLAMINIA and its accompanying tug boats FAIRMOUNT EXPEDITION (Fairmount Marine) and ANGLIAN SOVEREIGN (L.P. Knight) are bound for a position 40 nm south of the western-most point of the UK, Land's End.

On arrival at that position a team of experts consisting of dangerous goods specialists, chemists and salvage experts will conduct a safety inspection onboard the vessel. Together with experts from the UK, France and the Netherlands its condition and its cargo will be reviewed to ensure a safe passage through the English Channel.

In consultation with the German Central Command for Maritime Emergencies, MSC FLAMINIA will be towed to deep water anchorage in the German Bight, approximately 12 nm west of Heligoland. After completion of all planned tasks there, the vessel will then be towed to the port of Wilhelmshaven.
