Last night, the container ship "Mumbai Maersk" ran aground off the North Sea island of Wangerooge. The average command is now preparing a second salvage attempt.

The first attempt in the early morning to tow the ship into deeper water had to be abandoned because of the draining water. A sounding vessel has been called to the accident site to obtain up-to-date information on the water depth. "As soon as all preparations have been completed and powerful tugs are on site, another salvage attempt will be started when the water levels are optimal," the average command said this morning.

High water is necessary for salvage
"We would like to start now, but we have to wait for the highest water level," said a spokesman for Havariekommando. 1 p.m. is the earliest possible start for the next salvage attempt. The owner of the 399-metre-long and 59-metre-wide ship has meanwhile signed a contract with a salvage company, according to Havariekommando.

Accident occurs in the entrance to the Weser River
The "Mumbai Maersk", which sails under the Danish flag, was on its way from Rotterdam to Bremerhaven, according to the Havariekommando. As the ship approached the mouth of the Weser, it ran aground shortly after 11 pm on Wednesday evening. It was supposed to arrive in Bremerhaven at 0.45 am. According to the Havariekommando spokesman, no one was injured. A team of specially trained seamen was then brought on board the shipwrecked vessel.

The 400-metre-long container giant "Mumbai Maersk" has run aground in the North Sea tidal flats and must be towed free. The Central Command for Maritime Emergencies was basing its hopes on the high tide at around two o'clock in the morning of Friday night. The night before, an attempt to tow the freighter free had failed. The high water on Thursday afternoon was also too low. In addition, more powerful tugs are still needed.

Video How not to climb down a Pilot Ladder

published on 1 July 2020

The video was found on some social media channels in June 2020. When so many elementary mistakes are made and so many risks are taken, this is exactly what can happen! It's a demonstrative example of an unprofessional action: 1) Where is the life jacket? 2) No backpack on the shoulders. Use a rope to have the backpack lifted by the deck crew. 3) Where is the rest of the crew (on vessel / on the small boat) for safe assistance? What other mistakes have you discovered? We do not put videos...
