Aground ship still in Æbelø

The 148 meter long feeder ship Mito Strait, which on early Monday morning went aground in Æbelø north of Bogense on Fyn, is still stuck in the same location. Diving investigations have shown that the ship hit ground with such an intense force that the ships screw and rudder was damaged.

The ship is in the same location as yesterday, where Svitzer's tugboat Fenja sailed to the container vessel in the afternoon, though the tugboat did not tow the container ship.
Fenja returned to Fredericia last night, but is now almost at the scene of the accident.

Yesterday, Fyns Police Department expected that the container ship could be towed to Frederica after its hull had been investigated for damages. In Fredericia the ship was to be emptied for freight and thereafter towed to Fayard near Lindø.

Mito Strait was heading from Hamborg to Fredericia, when it went aground around 05.00 Monday morning nearly two nautical miles north of Æbelø

The environmental vessel Marie Miljø was near the scene of the accident to look for any sign of pollution. Seeing as there was no oil slip from the container ship, Marie Miljø spend the night in Bogense, and returned to the scene of the accident on Tuesday and Wednesday.
