FYI guys. There seems to be a problem with BESS. The ship is currently drifting off the coast of Ireland due to some sort of complication. I don't knowing else, if the cargo has to be placed on another ship or if the problem is being cured. Looks like at least 1 week delay. Ill try to find out more.

It could be that they anticipated a Nor'easter to hit our coastline and are waiting for the seas to calm. In that case it shouldn't be a long delay. I am only speculating and haven't been able to find any further info.
