In the evening of February 3rd , 2016, around 10.20 p.m. the CSCL Indian Ocean ran aground close to Grünendeich most certainly due to a rudder failure.
On February 7th, 2016 I was able to take some shots of the stranded vessel.
CSCL Indian Ocean still at her position off the fairway.
The panorama view shows all vessels operating around the vessel.
Most vessels are tug boats or dredgers.
The inland vessel Dresden II is just leaving the scene with MDO which it pumped off the CSCL Indian Ocean in order to lighten the ship.
Thousands of visitors came to the river in order to get a view at the scene. Even the traffic information on the radio mentioned the chaos alongside the river on both riverbanks.
Very impressive was the passage of 13,000 TEU container vessel Hanjin Asia passing by the scene with a draft of 14.2 metres.
The CSCL Indian Ocean will most certainly have to stay in her position till Tuesday February 9th, 2016 since this will be the time with the next spring tide. Until this moment the only thing the salvage staff can do is dredging the area as well as pumping all ballastwater as well as all fuel out of the ship.
