General cargo vessel ran onto embankment in Kiel Canal

Nov. 7, 2017 at 17:23 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

General cargo vessel RMS RUHRORT ran onto Kiel Canal embankment near Fisherhutte at around 0200 LT Nov 7, while transiting Canal in western direction, en route from Finland to UK. Steering control was lost, reportedly on the bridge by a watch officer, who nevertheless, managed to reverse engine in order to avoid grounding at full speed. Vessel freed itself some 20 minutes after grounding and resumed transit, but was berthed at Brunsbuettel for inspection on arrival, at 0450 LT. As of 2300 UTC Nov 7, she was still at Brunsbuettel.
