The Ocean Network Express (ONE) containership ONE Aquila has been diverted after it suffered a collapsed container stack in severe weather while enroute to the Port of Long Beach in the US.

The 2018-built, 14,052 teu, Panama-flagged ONE Aquila suffered a loss of containers in severe weather on 30 October. The vessel had been due to call at the Port of Long Beach on the US West Coast but due to the “vessel situation and various factors” has now been diverted to Tacoma with an expected arrival of 6 November.

A ONE customer advisory said that surveying and reworking of collapsed containers would be carried out in Tacoma subject to approval from the authorities.

“This is only the interim report of the progress and ONE will be advising all customers regarding those plans as they are concluded in due course,” the container line said.
