Salue Cornelia !

Found following on www.vesseltracker.com  but no further updates:
"Baltic Stream still at anchor/grounded near Drochtersen (River Elbe) - 30-07-12 16.34 HRS UTC
She is now assisted by tugs Wolf and Bugsier 17."

Ciao,
Rob.

Apparently the vessel sustained engine problems off Kollmar at 0135 hrs 30/7 and anchored for inspection.Nothing else heard so far.

She's been towed to Bützfleth on the Elbe and at the moment she's still berthed there...

Now can anyone confirm that she ran aground due to engine problems or did she just drop anchor there after the problems occurred? Her anchor was dropped, that can be seen on the photos and during the whole day until around midnight (that's when I went offline) last night I  watched that she moved around the anchor as can be seen on the photos, too, her bow pointing once upstream and once downstream.

I'm no expert in ship casualties, but does a grounded vessel move like that with the river current?

Cheers,
Jens
