Europe – South Africa (SRX service) - Update Maersk Lavras (voyage173B)

Dear Customer,

Last week we informed you that the M/S Maersk Lavras voyage 173B operating in our SRX service had experienced engine issues which were attended to, after which the vessel continued her voyage to Europe.

To enable completion of the repair work, it has now been decided to phase the vessel out of service after discharge of cargo at Rotterdam. Cargo destined for London Gateway and Bremerhaven will be discharged at Rotterdam where a connection is planned with the M/S Maersk La Paz on 16th August 2017. Below an overview of the revised ETA dates.

The M/S Maersk Lavraz will be replaced within our SRX service by the M/S Alexandra, which will enter the service at Bremerhaven on 10th August. The London Gateway call will be covered by the M/S MOL Presence, scheduled to depart from London Gateway 11th August 2017.

Below you can find an overview of the ETA dates of the M/S Alexandra including the ETS date at Cape Town.

We will continue monitoring the situation and will update you on any further developments or contingencies as and when information is available.

Should you have any questions, please contact your local MOL Customer Service representative.
