Report

------------------UPDATE-------------------

27 January 2021

* It is reported that an underwater inspection of bulk carrier, EUROSUN, revealed a small crack in the hull as a result of the vessel grounding on 23 January 2021.

* The damage to the hull has not caused flooding to the vessel's holds, but the vessel will not be permitted to move under its own power. It is reported that the vessel will be taken under tow, probably to Hambantota, for further inspection and repairs.

* It remains possible that General Average and/or Salvage issues may arise as a result of this casualty. We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you insure any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
