Maersk is applying for all the necessary permissions from the relevant authorities in connection with the intended recycling of the vessel,” a Maersk Line spokesperson confirmed to World Maritime News.

It has not been informed when this approval and subsequent recycling might take place.

The boxship was deployed on Maersk Line’s Canada Atlantic Express Service.
