Nederlands zeeschip na uitval motor gestrand

Grounding on St. Lawrence River

On June 21, 2017, the 'Flevoborg' ran aground on the St. Lawrence River
in front of Sainte-Croix in Lotbinière on the south side of the fairway

The ship was coming from Montreal, where it had sailed at 7.15 a.m.
carrying a cargo of maize, and was heading eastwards bound to Warrenpoint,
when the engines failed and it got stuck

The vessel did not interfere with passing ship traffic

With the help of tugs, the rising tide and pumping water from the ballasts tanks,
the ship managed to refloat by itself in the early evening

As the engines were still not working, the 'Flevoborg' was towed to Quebec
for repairs, where it berthed around 11.30 p.m - Vesseltracker.com
