The Panamanian flagged ship that ran aground last night before the German coast managed to be released in an operation involving several tugboats, without damaging the ship’s hull or cargo, about 9,000 tons destined for Spain.
The coastal authorities of the city of Cuxaven (north of Germany) reported on Monday that the operations to disinter the “Oriental Nadeshijo” were settled successfully past noon and after several hours of work.
The 22 crew members of the Panamanian freighter have not suffered any damage, nor have the occupants of the tugboats and other personnel involved in the operation.
The accident occurred shortly after midnight, when the ship was stranded in front of the mouth of the Elbe River.
The “Oriental Nadeshijo” had sailed from the German port of Bützfleth towards Spain and, after running aground in shallow waters, it was decided to wait for the tide to rise to proceed to refloat it.
The freighter transports flammable liquids of class 3, mainly 7,500 tons of ethylene dichloride, which is used as antiknock for fuels.
The load also includes 1,250 tons of propylene glycol, which is used as a preservative or solvent, as well as 250 tons of 1-methoxy-2-propanol, used as a solvent for the manufacture of inks and varnishes.
