Dec. 24, 2017 at 14:56 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

General cargo vessel MSM DOLORES at around 2000 LT Dec 23 ran onto embankment of Kiel Canal on 88.5 kilometer mark, while transiting Canal in eastern direction. Vessel turned perpendicular to channel, with stern stuck on embankment, effectively blocking all traffic. She was freed at around 2300 by two tugs and reached Kiel, where underwater survey was carried out. MSM DOLORES left Kiel in the morning Dec 24, en route from Portugal to Russia.
