Ultra-large container ship CSCL JUPITER grounding blocked Antwerp

Ultra-large container ship CSCL JUPITER ran aground on Scheldt river bank at around 0700 LT Aug 14 at Bath, Zeeland, Netherlands, while proceeding downstream en route from Antwerp to Hamburg. Vessel ran aground at a high speed of some 13 knots, after steering failure. She’s hard aground, surrounded by about 10 tugs, traffic in the area said to be suspended, with more than 10 inward and outward vessels blocked. Little hope vessel could be refloated until high tide, at 2050 LT today. Situation is dramatic, says Antwerp official. Salvors, meanwhile, are trying to assess probable hull damages. If hull of the giant ship is breached, dramatic situation may well turn into a nightmare.More photos at https://felixstowedocker.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/cscl-jupiter-container-ship-of-366.html
