Gallery: Refloating Glory Amsterdam


Central Command for Maritime Emergencies Germany (Havariekommando) published photos of the Glory Amsterdam’s refloating operation after the bulker grounded in the German Bight days ago.

The Panamax successfully reached the Port of Wilhelmshaven with the help of three tugs at around 19:30, November 2.

There has been no structural damage to the rudder of the ship, according to CCME. What is more, during the refloating and towing operations, no pollution could be detected.

The 77,200 dwt ship ran aground off the island Langeoog amid inclement weather on October 29.

Following a few unsuccessful refloating attempts, Glory Amsterdam was towed into deeper waters in the morning hours of November 2.
