Maersk Atlanta (MECL1 Service) Delay

Update 03 – January 22, 2014 / 1530 hrs (03:30pm):

  • Initially, vessel Maersk Atlanta was delayed into North America due to bad weather, and after departure from Newark (westbound), she hd encountered an engine breakdown which forced her to return to North America for emergency repairs
  • Vessel is expected to finish her repairs on January 24, which means she will arrive almost 12 days late into WCA

Below is the schedule recovery plan for Maersk Atlanta:

  • After Suez (eastbound), Maersk Atlanta will turn around at Salalah
  • Maersk Atlanta (Voyage 1404) will skip Jebel Ali – Port Qasim – Pipavav – Jawaharlal Nehru rotation
  • Vessel Nedlloyd Barentsz (Voyage 1402) will phase into the MECL1 service as an extraloader in Jebel Ali to take Maersk Atlanta’s position (on proforma), and will call Jebel Ali – Port Qasim – Pipavav – Jawaharlal Nehru – Salalah
  • All MECL1 exports will be loaded on Nedlloyd Barentsz (Voyage 1402) for Salalah discharge and then will connect to the Maersk Atlanta (Voyage 1404) in Salalah, with no impact on transit time
  • All onboard WCA imports from Maersk Atlanta (Voyage 1403) will get discharged in Salalah and then will connect to AE7/ME2 service for Jebel Ali discharge, which will cause a delay of one or two weeks
