Maestro Diamond Aground in Baltic Sea

The 2015-built bulk carrier Maestro Diamond ran into trouble in the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Gedser, Denmark in the evening hours of October 7, according to media reports.

Relevant authorities have dispatched the tug Kiel to assist with the salvage operations, however, the work is reportedly being hampered by unfavorable weather conditions at the site.

Loaded with 30,000 tons of fertilizer, the bulk carrier is said to be hard aground.

There were no reports of injuries to the crewmembers or water pollution in the area.

According to AIS data from MarineTraffic, the 36,920 dwt vessel was on its way from Lithuanian port of Klaipeda to the port of New Orleans, US at the time of the incident.

The exact cause of the grounding is still unknown.
