I hope the owners of cargo on board this ship have Marine Insurance…
The 3 month old cargo ship MV X-Press Pearl had a fire erupt while off the coast of Sri Lanka, believed to be caused by chemicals that were being transported. The ship carrying 1486 containers including 25 tonnes of nitric acid (and other chemicals) had 5 tug boats and a navy ship anchored nearby engaged in firefighting efforts.
Marine Insurance is ALWAYS worth it!
