Tiwala-movements caused damage at Brunsbuettel lock installations
On Jan 21, 2012, at 11.40 p.m. the Dutch roro ferry "Plyca", while passing the inland port of Brunsbüttel eastbound from Antwerp to Rauma, had so much speed off the TOTAL bunker station that strong suction and swell caused movements of the moored "Tiwala", which was enroute Muuga-Bayonne, so that one of the ship's bow lines broke. The movement caused considerable damage to the gangway and a shelter with hose reels. The Water Police Station Brunsbüttel launched an investigation. The master of the "Plyca" had to pay a guarantee deposit of 175 Euro.Upload News
