MV “Northern Guard” diverted to port of Mumbai

Hamburg, April 8, 2014 – Managers Norddeutsche Reederei H. Schuldt GmbH & Co. KG regret to report that following an explosion on board its container vessel Northern Guard on April 6 one of its valued seafarers has suffered fatal injuries. Northern Guard has meanwhile sailed under its own power to the port of Mumbai where the vessel is currently at anchor.
Management and staff at Norddeutsche Reederei H. Schuldt wish to offer their deepest condolences to the family of their deceased colleague. The company’s thoughts are with his relatives, friends and fellow crew members. The family of the seafarer has been personally visited and informed, and will be offered full support in these extremely difficult times.
The explosion on board Northern Guard occurred in one of the cargo holds whilst the vessel was en route from Pipavav to Colombo. No pollution has occurred as a result of the incident. A first assessment by the crew has shown that Northern Guard has sustained damage to the hatch cover and a number of containers in the cargo hold. The Indian Coast Guard and relevant parties were informed immediately after the incident.
Northern Guard is currently at anchorage in the port of Mumbai where authorities, safety experts, professional investigators and representatives of the P&I Club have boarded the vessel. A doctor is attending to the crew of Northern Guard to check on their wellbeing. Representatives of Norddeutsche Reederei H. Schuldt from Hamburg are on their way to join the vessel.
Currently arrangements are being made to repatriate the body of the deceased crew member to his place of origin where his family will arrange for his funeral.
The exact cause of this tragic incident is yet unknown. Authorities will start a thorough investigation, to which Norddeutsche Reederei H. Schuldt will give its full cooperation. A full assessment of the damage to Northern Guard and its cargo will take place in the next few days.
Northern Guard is a 2008 built container vessel flying the Liberian flag.
