Following the fire incident in NYK Delphinus engine room on 14 May, Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that the owners of the ship have declared general average to share the cost of the accident.
In conjunction with the declaration of general average, the owners have appointed OCEANA Marine Claims & Adjusting and Marine Adjusting Solutions Inc, as the average adjusters.
