Fire extinguished on Hanjin containership

Suez Canal emergency response boats help put out the fire on a 13,102-TEU Hanjin vessel.

   A fire on a Hanjin containership was extinguished Friday with the help of the Suez Canal Authority emergency response boats.
   The Egyptian news site Ahram Online quoted Suez Canal Authority Chairman Mohab Mamees as saying the ship was 48 kilometers to the south of the canal when some containers aboard caught fire. The Suez Canal sent five emergency response boats to contain the fire.
   Ahram noted navigation in the canal was unaffected by the incident.
   Various press reports identified the ship as the Hanjin Green Earth, a 13,102 TEU containership registered in the Isle of Man. According to ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting, the Hanjin Green Earth is currently deployed on the CKYHE Alliance’s NE6 loop between Asia, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and North Europe. The NE6 is operated with 11 Hanjin vessels with an average capacity of 12,544 TEUs. The full port rotation of the service is Qingdao, Kwangyang, Busan, Shanghai, Yantian, Singapore, Jeddah, Algeciras, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Le Havre, Algeciras, Singapore, Yantian, and Qingdao.
