STRANDED FREMANTLE CONTAINER SHIP AFLOAT AGAIN

Posted in fremantle, fremantle ports, maersk garonne by freoview on February 28, 2015

It took four powerful tug boats and the ships engine to pull the MAERSK GARONNE container vessel off the sandbar just off the South Mole at Fremantle port.

The fifth tug that rushed to support was not needed and the Garonne headed off at 8.30 am out to Gage Roads, presumably waiting for high tide this afternoon and have a second try at berthing.
