The "Hellespont Charger", which had been docked in the inner port of Brunsbüttel following an engine damage on Feb 14, 2014, resumed its voyage on Feb 27 towards Rotterdam. The vessel had been disabled whilst coming from Kaliningrad and having transited the Kiel Canal westbound. The tug "Arion" pulled it from Ostermoor towards the Brunsbüttel locks and entered the locks at 2.40 p.m.
The "Crystal Gold" reached the waters off Pakistan after having been chased by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean about 40 nautical miles from the coast on Feb 28, 2014, around 4:00 p.m. while the ship was on its way from Chittagong to Bandar Abbas.
The ship traffic between Deggendorf and Vilshofenwas interrupted on Feb 28 as the lightering of the "Athos" has started. About 170 tons of corn were to be removed from the cargo hold of the vessel since the morning. It was hoped to get the ship off in the afternoon, while two more remained stuck due to low water levels.
