Casualty type Grounded
Vessel Type General Cargo - VT GGC

* We have received reports that general cargo ship ATLANTA ran aground off Chalki Island, Greece on 28 April 2023.

* It is reported that professional salvors have been instructed by shipowners to seek to assist to refloat the vessel which is currently reported to remain aground.

* Consequently, Salvage security is 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.

* Recovery issues in respect of loss or damage to cargo may also arise as a consequence of the grounding.

* 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.
