27 June 2018 - 12:07
On June 27 the salvage of the 'Kiesfracht', 1717 ts (EU-No.: 04604990), which had run aground on the Danube in the afternoon of June 22 at 5 p.m. at river km 2306 near Bogen in the Pfelling area, and the 'Plochingen', 1446 ts (EU-No.: 04001480), has commenced. The removal of the 'Kiesfracht' had priority as she was blocking the fairway. First a part of the 1.050 tons wheat on board have to be lightered onto another barge. Then the ship is to be pulled off and immediately after the removal the fairway will have to be dredged. Gravel had built up during the failed salvage attempts by the 'Plochingen', the salvage of which was not as urgent as she was stuck outside the fairway. If everything went according to plan, ship traffic may be resumed in the afternoon of June 27.
