M/V Honor sails from Southampton

The M/V Honor sailed from Southampton, U.K. on Tuesday, March 7 and has several U.S. port calls scheduled for later this month, American Roll-on Roll-off Carrier (ARC) reported.

The Honor is manned in all licensed positions by American Maritime Officers.

There was a cargo fire onboard the Honor the morning of February 24 after the ship had departed the Port of Southampton. The fire was extinguished and there were no injuries to the officers or crew.

The Honor returned to the port under her own power, was safely berthed, and the ship's CO2 system was refilled. After shifting to anchorage, the ship was successfully ventilated and returned to the pier in Southampton on March 1.

The initial inspection of the ship by authorities was completed on March 3, and the fire inspection and the inspection of cargo on all decks were completed on March 4, the company reported.

"ARC would like to express its appreciation for the assistance of the authorities and the swift, professional actions of our crew in this situation," the company stated.
