Ship enters closed gate of the Holtenau lock in Kiel Canal

Astonishing and annoying accident in the German Kiel Canal today:

This morning shortly after 5 a.m. local time the vessel “Else” had a collision in the Kiel-Holtenau lock to the Kiel Canal.

The "Else" passed the pilot's boarding position without taking a sea pilot on board and collided from the outside into the closed gate of the new north lock. The bow bored into the metal construction and the ship was stuck for about six hours.

In the meantime, the freighter was towed away, but the lock gate is no longer usable, according to Detlef Wittmüß, head of the Kiel-Holtenau Waterways and Shipping Office.


Only one lock chamber in Kiel-Holtenau still in operation

It is still unclear how the accident could have happened. According to Wittmüß, divers should now examine the damage. Until further notice, only one lock chamber is available. Since the replacement gate is currently being repaired, the lock will probably have to manage with only one chamber for a longer period of time.


The 88-meter long freighter was actually on its way to France.

Erstaunlicher und ärgerlicher Unfall im deutschen Nord-Ostsee-Kanal heute:
Das Schiff "Else" ist am Morgen kurz nach 5 Uhr Ortszeit in der Schleuse Kiel-Holtenau zum Nord-Ostsee-Kanal in das geschlossene Tor gefahren.
Die "Else" passierte die Boarding-Position der Lotsen, ohne einen Seelotsen an Bord zu nehmen, und kollidierte von See kommend mit dem geschlossenen Tor der neuen Nordschleuse. Der Bug bohrte sich in das Tor und das Schiff steckte etwa sechs Stunden lang fest.
In der Zwischenzeit wurde der Frachter abgeschleppt, aber das Schleusentor ist nach Angaben des Leiters des Wasser- und Schifffahrtsamtes Kiel-Holtenau, Detlef Wittmüß, nicht mehr nutzbar.

Nur noch eine Schleusenkammer in Kiel-Holtenau in Betrieb
Es ist immer noch unklar, wie es zu dem Unfall kommen konnte. Laut Wittmüß sollten nun Taucher den Schaden untersuchen. Bis auf weiteres steht nur eine Schleusenkammer zur Verfügung. Da das Ersatztor derzeit repariert wird, wird die Schleuse wohl längere Zeit mit nur einer Kammer auskommen müssen.
Der 88 Meter lange Frachter war eigentlich auf dem Weg nach Frankreich.

Video SWATH Technology by Abeking & Rasmussen

SWATH@A&R – AN IDEA ON THE RISE

Visit company profile: Abeking & Rasmussen

For thousands of years ships have been firmly anchored in human identity. They have benefited and advanced the human kind in countless ways. And yet all along this amazing journey seafarers have been plagued by seasickness, an incessant and relentless nausea caused by the ship’s rolling and rocking. Many experts have tried to find the remedy for the persistent ailment, but always with moderate success.

That is, until Abeking & Rasmussen took up the challenge in 1999 in their usual, intense way and set new standards in on-board comfort and seakeeping with the development of the SWATH technology. Since then, the shipyard delivered almost 30 extremely accomplished SWATH@A&R (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessels that owe their success to one groundbreaking advantage – stable and calm voyage even in high and stormy seas. With the innovative technology the shipyard won accolades across the shipbuilding world and took its rightful place as the world market leader in this highly promising industry sector.
