South East Asia Australia Service (SEA) – Vessel delay and incident

The SEA Service vessel MV Northern Jupiter voyage 949N, experienced a main engine fire on Saturday morning January 4, 2020 whilst she was sailing from Singapore to Port Kelang.

The vessel operators advised us that after the incident the vessel was safely anchored in the vicinity of the Malacca Straits before she was permitted to be towed back to Singapore on the 16th of January for technical assessment of damage.

Due to the severity of this incident, the owners of MV Northern Jupiter have now declared General Average.

Owners have appointed Stichling Hahn Hilbrich (Hamburg & London) as Average Adjusters. They will be arranging for the collection of General Average securities from parties concerned in cargo, containers and bunkers. Their contact details are as follows:

Mr. Jürgen Hahn
E-mail: [email protected]
Tel.: +49 (40) 300 956 0

Mrs. Martina Wolf
E-mail: [email protected]
Tel.: +49 (40) 300 956 30

The Average Adjusters are preparing the necessary instructions to the parties concerned in cargo as well as Average Bond and Average Guarantee forms which are to be completed and signed by cargo interests respectively their cargo insurers. We are informed that this information will be distributed shortly. We will inform you once the forms can be downloaded from the General Average Adjuster’s website.

It is highly recommended that you inform your cargo insurers of this development as soon as possible as they are familiar with these standard General Average procedures.
