In the North Pacific, a Maersk Ship Loses 90 Containers

Storms in the Northern Pacific have apparently claimed another containership. A container ship named “DYROS” with a capacity of 4578TEU capsized and sank on the North Pacific’s Kamchatka Peninsula, resulting in the loss of many containers. The ship “DYROS” was on its way from Yantian Port to Seattle at the time of the tragedy. The container ship continued to sail south of Unalashka, Alaska, at 1400 UTC after the container was lost in the water. The accident’s specific cause has yet to be determined.

Maersk revealed that its rented vessel Dyros lost roughly 90 containers in strong seas in the North Pacific on 21, March, 2022, around 1,200 nautical miles east of Japan, with nine boxes containing dangerous cargo among the losses. Nine of these containers were marked as risky goods and included lithium-ion batteries and other equipment.

site design, interoperability certification, and cheaper investment costs will be available to customers hauling goods in Gatik’s autonomous electric fleet. Gatik will also have access to a nationwide charging network and fleet-specific software that delivers telemetric analytics that can be customized to each customer’s operations, as well as modular charging hardware that reduces necessary electrical capacity and lowers upfront costs. The electrified logistics sector will benefit greatly from this strategic electric ecosystem collaboration for the middle mile.

“Crew, ship, and operational safety are vital, and we consider this to be a very serious incident that will be properly investigated in order to reduce the danger of future incidents,” Maersk stated.

The Liberian-registered vessel was built in 2008 and has served as a charter vessel for several of the world’s largest container carriers. Maersk says that it sailed from Yantian on March 17 on a route connecting China, South Korea, Japan, and Seattle.
