The ship could not slow down and sailed against the Old North Lock - “Alte Schleuse Nord”.
On Sunday evening (17/05/2020) around 10 pm, a collision occurred on the Kiel Canal in Brunsbüttel. The Dutch freighter "Rimini" (85m, IMO 9421635) collided with the Old Lock North and severely damaged it.
The crew could not stop the freighter
According to the water police in Brunsbüttel, the background is not yet fully clarified. It is assumed that the crew had had problems reversing the engine system. The ship could not brake sufficiently to avoid a collision.
The crew still dropped anchor to reduce speed.

All India Marine Pilot Association has been formed by a Group of Mariners who care for "safety and security" of the Marine Pilots.
Although a lot of our Indian seafarers felt the dire need of such a body, it was only after the unfortunate and untimely demise of Capt V P Gupta following his fall from the ladder on 8th August 2019, that pilots and like-minded individuals started expressing their displeasure about the 'Eco-system'. Capt. Virendra Mishra, C.E.O., The Shipping Tribune, had the opportunity to interview Capt. Gajanan Karanjikar, Founder President- All India Marine Pilots Association (In Formation).
The interview focused on the following issues:
1. The association has started with the aim of improving the entire eco system of pilot boarding arrangements. How do you plan to achieve this?
2. One of the policies of AIMPA is "Reform the pilot recruitment & licensing " Pls tell us about the reforms you intend to bring.
3. The main objective is "Safety & security of the pilots". Have you done any survey with pilots what are their existing concerns about safety & security?
4. There is a need for data collection for accidents and near misses. How will the association ensure this mammoth task with all major and non majors ports and terminals?
5. What role maritime administration can play in your opinion to minimise the risk and threat to the safety of pilots?
