The operator CMA CGM OSIRIS contacted MB via PR party and informed them as follows:
The article: http://maritimebulletin.ru/cma-cgm-new-15000-teu-container-ship-out-of-service-to-be-towed-for-repairs/ reports that the vessel was towed to for repair following an engine failure. It’s not a precise report. WinGD can confirm that the vessel did not suffer engine failure.
Comment: The problem can be whatever it is, the most important are, in fact, the following problems:
Should the vessel be decommissioned and repaired at Shanghai ship repair facilities?
Have all containers on board been unloaded
What was the character of the accident, is basically irrelevant.

The container ship CMA CGM OSIRIS suffered an engine failure while leaving Xiamen China, in accordance with the Far East-Red Sea Service 2 (RES2) program. Local sources said the giant ship with a pilot on board was already en route in the neck of a main shipping channel, and not being under control, it was expected to end up in a serious accident, blocking the channel. Fortunately, the tug base is located close to the crash site, so three tugs were able to respond almost immediately and avert disaster. The CMA CGM OSIRIS was brought back to dock, inspection revealed that the main engine was so badly damaged that it needed a shipyard repair. More than 5,000 containers were unloaded on February 7, CMA CGM OSIRIS must be towed to the ship repair yard in Shanghai. The containers will be delivered to their destinations by surrogate vessels. CMA CGM OSIRIS was built in China, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd., in 2021.
