A spokesman said: “It was determined that the facilities were in good order. The docks will open as normal at 8am on Friday, and will be able to receive containers back on the port at that time.”

Warren Jones, Chief Executive of Polaris Holding Company Ltd, SSL’s parent company, said: “I am pleased to report that the Hamilton Port has been reset and is ready to receive the Bermuda Islander and regular business customers on Friday.”

The MV Bermuda Islander was scheduled to be offloaded on arrival.
