Cargo ship grounded in Belizean waters

Posted: Monday, March 27, 2023. 4:55 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize Port Authority has responded to a marine incident in which a cargo vessel has run aground in Belizean waters.

“The vessel was transiting Belizean waters en route to Port Everglades from their last port call in Puerto Cortes [Honduras]. The vessel is carrying containers and break-bulk cargo.”

According to the Port Authority, the vessel experienced mechanical failure at approximately 4:00 a.m. on March 26, east of Drowned Caye. The vessel remains grounded and a salvage operation will commence shortly under the supervision of the Department of the Environment, the Port Authority and the Belize Coast Guard.

The vessel has been detained pending an investigation into the incident, environmental impacts and damage assessment. According to the Port Authority, the vessel does not pose threat of pollution at this time, as its hull remains intact.

Once dislodged from its position, the vessel will remain detained until the conclusion of the investigation and damage assessment. The 13 crew members onboard are safe and cooperating with Belizean authorities.
