* We have received reports that fully cellular container carrier, TASMAN, experienced a fire in its engine room on or about 21July 2021 during its passage from Brisbane to Yokohama.

* It is understood that the fire was extinguished by the crew but that power to temperature controlled containers was interrupted for a period of time as a consequence of the fire.

* The vessel was later able to resume its voyage towards Yokohama under its own power and is currently en route to Osaka.

* Recovery issues may arise in respect of any deterioration of temperature controlled cargo arising as a result of the interruption of power to such containers.

* We have already been instructed by certain Cargo Insurers and may be able to offer certain economies of scale in respect of any third party costs which may need to be incurred in respect of any investigation surrounding the circumstances of the fire.

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