Discharge of damaged containers and repair works on the Ocean Network Express (ONE) vessel ONE Aquila that suffered a container collapse in severe weather have taken less time than expected.

The 2018-built, 14,052 teu, Panama-flagged ONE Aquila was diverted from calling Long Beach to Tacoma for repairs reaching the port on 6 November. ONE said in customer advisory that discharge of containers was taking place quicker than forecast and the vessel was expected to depart Tacoma on 11 November.

It was now expected to arrive in Long Beach on 15 November rather than 26 November as originally forecast. However, at present it is not expected to be able to berth at Long Beach until 20 November. The ONE Aquila is then expected to call in Oakland on 27 November.

The vessel suffered a loss of containers in severe weather on 30 October and was diverted to Tacoma from its original destination of the Port of Long Beach.
