The notification was issued by the Limak Port authorities and reported that around 1,730 containers and cargo stowed therein were completely burnt and the details of the containers will be provided later on.

Vitsan stated: "In order to commence routine port operations of the port after the earthquake and fire, the operations of the port will be initiated gradually and as a beginning, they have informed the partners since 15 February 2023 to take out their empty containers from the port.

Thereafter, in order to make coordination for insurance processes the Limak Port is requesting an e-mail from the relevant parties whose cargo was in the Limak Port area, to until 21 February 2023 - 17:00 lt and submit information about the cargo owner, container number, name of cargo and if possible along with insurance policies.  

The Limak Port will make all the arrangements and planning and then will inform the relevant parties if / when their cargo and container will be ready for examination and they will not give port entrance permission to any party without appointment.

They anticipate the port will start loading and discharge operations of the vessels within 3 months."
