* Bulk carrier, IRMA S is reported to have dragged anchor and grounded off Preveza, Greece on 10 December 2020.

* It appears that the vessel is currently still aground and is being attended to by two tugs.

* The vessel is reported to be loaded with a cargo of soya meal from Argentina.

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

* If so, Salvage Security may be demanded from a source in the UK and W K Webster may be able to assist. Security provided by WKW is acceptable to the Council of Lloyds and widely preferred by professional Salvors.

* Additionally, if General Average is declared, General Average security may be required from Cargo Interests prior to the delivery of their cargo and we are also likely to be able to assist in that regard.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you insure any cargo on board this vessel and you require our assistance
