Lomar's boxship to be scrapped after running aground off New Caledonia

A NEW 2,194-TEU containership delivered to Lomar Shipping from a shipyard in China earlier this year has split in two, after smashing into the Durand reefs near New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean on July 12.

14 November 2017 - 22:00 - Update: 15 November 2017 - 01:18

Buffeted by fierce weather the Kea Trader's structural condition deteriorated dramatically making salvage work very difficult after the ship ran aground, reported Singapore's Splash 24/7.

All the fuel has been siphoned off the ship and most of the containers have been offloaded, although, local media reported that a few boxes were spotted floating near the wrecked vessel, which will be sent to the scrap yard.
