* It is reported that bulk carrier, BERGE YOTEI, experienced an explosion and fire in a cargo hold whilst navigating off the south western coast of Chile on 2 May 2021.

* The fire is reported to have been extinguished by the crew, but the vessel sustained damage to a hatch cover as a result of the explosion. It is not yet clear what damage may have been sustained to the cargo, but it seems very likely that there will be a degree of damage, caused either by the fire and/or the extinguishing efforts.

* BERGE YOTEI is now reported to have diverted towards Talcahuano, Chile, under its own power, for inspection and repairs.

* It is possible that general average and recovery issues may arise as a result of this incident.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
