346  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Sichem Aneline aground in Montreal on: April 14, 2007, 03:20:50 am
Thanks Laurent for posting this information. I hope all goes well with the ship but most of all for the environment.

Here is what I found on the web:

Apr 12, 2007 1:59:00 PM MST
Grounded tanker carrying benzene towed safely to Port of Montreal (Que-Ship-Stuck)
MONTREAL (CP) _ A tanker ship full of chemicals has been safely towed to shore in Montreal after running aground in the St. Lawrence River.

Emergency teams were in place as the Sichem Aneline was towed into port on Thursday.

France Poulin, spokeswoman for the Port of Montreal, said the ship was transporting the chemical benzene, a flammable and toxic liquid used in the manufacture of chemical products.

A few minutes before the ship arrived at the port, the captain reported a problem with the rudder problems, but Poulin said the ship didn‘t leak and there was no danger for approximately 20 people on board.

“No injuries, no damage was reported,‘‘ Poulin said. “There was no leakage from the ship, either.‘‘

The ship ran aground late Wednesday afternoon off the eastern tip of the island of Montreal.

“The ship will ... be inspected before resuming its journey,‘‘ Poulin said.

Officials from the Port of Montreal and Transport Canada were on the scene.

The Sichem Aneline is owned and operated by Japan-based Eitzen Chemical.

The ship is headed to Philadelphia.

Poulin said such occurrences are rare at the Port of Montreal, which welcomes more than 2,000 ships a year. The last similar incident took place in 2004.

... on the map it is in or close to Canso Harbour.

Hi Dean,

Here in Quebec City, the ice has melted and the Coast Guard ships have left the area... perhaps going towards Newfoundland. I just saw the TERRY FOX leave yesterday and it was heading East.

Good luck...
