CONTAINER SHIP AGROUND OFF FREO’S SOUTH MOLE

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

The large cargo vessel MAERSK GARONNE has run on ground early this Saturday morning just off the Fremantle South Mole. It was due at berth in Fremantle Ports at 5 am but missed the channel into the port and it looks like it came in too far to the south.

Three tug boats are trying to pull the 292-metre long ship off the sandbank but it is fully loaded and has a tonnage of 50757, so it probably needs very high tide and a good bit of horsepower to get it floating again.
