* We have received reports that RO-RO cargo ship, FRIJSENBORG, experienced an engine room fire whilst in a position off the west coast of Mexico on or about 24 December 2021.

* It is reported that the crew were able to extinguish the fire but that the vessel was immobilised as a consequence of the fire.

* The vessel was later taken under tow by tug provided by professional salvors towards Panama.

* Salvage services are being rendered to the vessel under LOF terms. Consequently, Salvage Security will be required to be provided by a party acceptable to the Salvors or the Council of Lloyd's on behalf of cargo interests and W K Webster may be able to assist. Security provided by WKW is acceptable to the Council of Lloyd's and widely preferred by professional Salvors.

* If General Average is declared, General Average security may also be required from all 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 are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
