Updated: ONE FP2 service suffers second stack collapse in a month

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has seen a second vessel suffer a stack collapse on its FP2 service due to severe weather conditions while on its way to Long Beach, on 1 December.

The 14,000TEU vessel ONE Apus will be delayed while investigations into the stack collapse are completed. A schedule recovery plan is now being formulated said the company and will be advised to customers shortly.

Ship manager NYK Shipmanagement Pte Ltd which handles the 2019-built One Apus  reported “that a significant number of shipping containers were lost overboard during severe weather, 1,600 nautical miles north west of Hawaii, United States, at 2315 hrs, local time, approximately on the night of, Monday, 30 November.”

The vessel was heading to Long Beach in the US from Yantian, China, when it encountered a storm producing gale-force winds and large swells which caused the ship to roll heavily resulting in the loss of containers overboard.

According to reports the master has diverted the vessel to Kobe in Japan, “to ensure the ongoing safety of the crew and ship until conditions eased.”

Weather conditions were also blamed for the stack collapse suffered by the 14,000TEU ONE Aquila, also operating in the FP2 service and heading for Long Beach, on 6 November.
