On 29.08.2020 at approx. 05:10 hrs the freighter "Else" entered the fjord-side lock gate of the northern chamber of the big lock in Kiel-Holtenau without any brakes.

The divers' examinations showed that the air tanks of the gate were not damaged.
The damaged gate is removed, replaced by a spare gate and swum out to the repair site. There the damage will be further examined.
