The U.S. Coast Guard 11th District reports that a Unified Command has coordinated the safe transfer of the NYK Delphinus to the Port of Oakland.

As we reported earlier, the 4,888 TEU, 2007-built, Liberian-flagged NYK Line vessel was taken under tow after the Unified Command responded to a May 14 report of an engineroom fire.

The NYK Delphinus arrived at Oakland Terminal Berth 22 at approximately 7 p.m., Monday.

Earlier, firefighting teams had boarded the Delphinus Sunday evening, verified the engine room fire was extinguished, and continued hourly rounds to monitor temperatures. Marine surveyors and a marine chemist boarded the ship Monday morning. The chemist determined spaces were safe for entry and the surveyors inspected the structural integrity of the vessel.

The surveyors deemed the ship seaworthy. The tugboats Patricia Ann, Revolution, Independence, Jamie Ann, and Delta Lindsay then completed the Unified Command NOAA-approved tow of the Delphinus to the Port of Oakland.
