Due to a software mistake the brand new "Siem Cicero", having sailed from Pula on July 1, lost steering and ran aground on the Ems afer it got off its course in the Dollart-Bight on July 13, 2017, at 12.30 p.m. The ship could no longer be steered and encountered a bottom touch outside the fairway between the radar station and the Emder Knock. The 53 year old master ordered two tugs which pulled the vessel, which was only in service since 10 days, ack into the port of Emden where it had berthed on July 11 and sailed short past noon. Divers conducted a bottom survey, but found no damage. After the software mistake was corrected, the sailing ban which had been pronounced by the relevant authorities was lifted at 6 p.m., and the ship left port bound to Halifax on July 14 at 1.45 a.m.
