A Ro-ro cargo ship GRANDE GUINEA has run aground in Western Scheldt in front of Bath, at around 0130 UTC September 2, 2022, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Ro-ro cargo ship GRANDE GUINEA ran aground in Western Scheldt in front of Bath, at around 0130 UTC September 2, 2022, while sailing downstream, en route from Antwerp to Zeebrugge.

“Tugs assisted, the ship was refloated at around 0300 UTC, taken upstream to Schaar van Ouden Doel anchorage. Was either anchored or in process of anchoring at 0630 UTC, with 2 tugs assisting.

“No reports on damages, probably none. Cause of grounding unknown, but it looks like grounding caused by some mechanical failure – the ship reduced speed and went off course.”
