General cargo vessel grounding, Denmark

July 24, 2017 at 03:08 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

General cargo vessel REBECCA ROUSING ran aground while approaching Skive port, Denmark, on July 22, en route from Sweden. Initial plan was to refloat the ship with coming tide without tugs assistance, but it didn’t work out, and on July 23 tug was contracted. Vessel was refloated before midday July 23, and taken to Skive. Early in the morning July 24 vessel sailed from Skive, bound for Aalborg. No reports on damages. Port officials believe grounding was ship’s fault, as the ship was too late with making a turn. According to vessel’s management, port is to blame, because fairway depths weren’t sufficient.
