They are initially attending the shipside and part of the accommodation renewal. Following that, the cargo refrigeration compartment will be attended to. The extent of the damage is enormous.
The precise extent of the damage is still unknown. Following the marine casualty, no investigation report has been made public. The crew has clearly been summoned to the office to record witness statements.
MVR 27.8 million was allocated for the purchase of this vessel from the loan facility received from India for the upgrade of MIFCO’s tuna canning factory, storage, and collecting vessels.
Three MIFCO officials stayed in Thailand for more than three months to finalize the deal. Superintendent Capt.Zareer (Harbour Master of Malé port), Ref engineer Hussein Jameel, and Mr.Didi are among the officials.
Following the takeover, the ship was docked in Thailand for renaming and shipside painting. At Thailand dock, no other major work has been completed. Cargo compartment repairs began soon after her arrival in Malé. On September 15th, an unfortunate collision occurred due to wind gusts and had to undergo repair work on the Jazeera Reefer.
