Tanker went out of control after engine failure and collided with general cargo ship in Kiel Canal near Kiel locks, at around 0120 LT Jul 27.

The ships were transiting Canal in opposite directions, both reportedly, sustained damages and were detained. Tanker was berthed near collision site, general cargo ship according to track, exited Canal and was berthed in port outside locks.

Ships weren’t identified, but according to tracks, tanker ORASUND and general cargo ship BBC PARANA were involved. ORASUND is en route from Liepaja Latvia to Ireland, BBC PARANA is en route from China to Umea Sweden. As of 1420 UTC Jul 27, both ships remained berthed in Kiel. Reportedly, ships didn’t report water ingress, nor there was any leak.
Apparently due to an engine failure, the ship drifted in the direction of a cargo ship, so that both collided. Even an emergency anchorage could not prevent the collision.
