Watch: Ultra Large CSCL Jupiter Boxship Stuck off Antwerp

On August 14th the CSCL JUPITER has ran aground on the river Scheldt.

She is stuck to be pulled free by the tugboats at this moment. The red buoy is in the middle of the ship and the tide is dropping.

The stern is in 15m depth water while the bow is aground.

The cause of the grounding was due to failing rudder, and the emergency rudder equipment wasn’t enough to steer her clear in the tight corner.

She grounded at 13knots.
