Maston cargo ship fixed and set to arrive in Honolulu Friday

    The Matson Inc. container ship

A Matson Inc. cargo ship stalled in the Pacific was repaired Wednesday night and is scheduled to arrive in Honolulu late Friday afternoon.

The SS Matsonia was originally slated to arrive on Wednesday morning, but lost power at about 550 miles north of Hawaii.

Engineers were able to fix a problem in the engine room that cut off power, said Matson spokesman Jeff Hull. 

There are 21 people on board the ship that was traveling from Oakland, Calif.

"It is moving at a slower speed than usual," Hull said. "We apologize for the delay."

Matson said it will honor claims for perishables lost as a result of the incident.
