The Water Police in Hamburg has inspected the tanker "Korsaro" in Hamburg on June 3, 2013 and found a violation of the sulfur directive. The ship had moored at berth Rethe Kruse on June 1, coming from Porsgrunn. Officials checked the ship's certificates and investigated the engine room. They found diesel generators and the auxiliary boiler were not converted from a high-sulphurous (within 1 percent sulfur content) to a low-sulfurous fuel (up 0.1 percent) in time. The police took samples for accurate laboratory analysis. The chief engineer from Italy and two engineers had to deposit guarantees of € 10630.50. On June 4 at 9.45 the ship left Hamburg bound for New York.
Repairs of the "Atlantic Cartier" were expected to be completed on June 8. The ship was scheduled to sail to Gothenburg before heading for Norfolk, USA, with an ETA of June 28, with stopovers at Antwerp, Liverpool, Halifax and New York. The cargo which was aboard when the fire broke out on May 1 was transported off by other ships of ACL and the mother Company Grimaldi while the "Atlantic Cartier" remained sidelined.
