Alba Rousing breaks free
The Danish coaster Alba Rousing, which went aground on Wednesday night near Bardenfleths Grund north of Årø in the southern part of Lillebælt, is no longer stuck and is currently at a dock in the Port of Kolding. The vessel broke free around 01.00 o’clock Thursday night.
The ship was heading from Nakskov to Kolding when it went aground. Following the incident, the ship was held back by the Danish Maritime Authorities for a damage inspection. The coaster broke free from ground during the arly hours of Friday and headed towards Kolding, where it laid at dock around 04.30 o’clock.
Alba Rousing, which is owned by shipping company C.Rousing , is specially designed for inland water shipping. The ship therefore has a very flat bottom and has a draft of only 3.65 meters. The 32-year-old ship has Liseleje as its homeport.
