Containership MARCOS V Loses over 26 containers after encountering Storm Eunice

Panama-registered 6,350 TEU containership MARCOS V (IMO: 9307059) has lost at least 26 containers, reportedly empty FEU, in the North sea around the Wadden Islands after being caught in Storm Eunice the intervening night of Feb 18 and 19.

The vessel’s last reported destination was Rotterdam, probably after containers loss, where it berthed at around 1200 UTC Feb 19. The Dutch coastguards used helicopters and an emergency towing vessel to search for the missing container. They’ve also alerted ships in the area to keep a watch for the lost containers.
