Second CMA CGM vessel faces machinery issues in seven days

The 3,426 TEU container ship CMA CGM Veracruz became disabled and adrift south of New Orleans in the United States on 20 January, according to a recent report from marine and transit claims consultancy WK Webster.

"It is possible that General Average/Salvage and associated recovery issues may arise as a result of this casualty," said WK Webster.

Greek shipping data and real-time information provider, MarineTraffic reports that the navigational status of CMA CGM Veracruz is "Underway using Engine" and that the ship is currently located at the area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The vessel was sailing from the port of Kingston in Jamaica to New Orleans and it is reported that it departed the port of New Orleans to arrive at Houston on 25 January.

The 2010-built boxship is owned by the Singapore-headquartered shipping company CNC Line.

This is the second machinery failure incident of a boxship operated by the French ocean carrier in January, as earlier in the month CMA CGM Barracuda ran aground in the Netherlands.
