Bulk carrier CAPE LEONIDAS suffered engine failure at around 0500 LT Jan 17 on Elbe river near Kollmar, while proceeding to Hamburg. Vessel dropped an anchor and avoided grounding. Capesize resumed moving at around 1400 LT, understood under tow, with at least five tugs deployed, and as of 1500 UTC was under way moving upstream towards Hamburg. Vessel is en route from Narvik, so she should be in load. Traffic in the area was temporarily suspended.
