Freighter kept from overloaded transit of the Kiel Canal
On Feb 2, 2019, at 9 p.m. the "Leo Trio" was subject of a control by the water police station Brunsbüttel which found a considerable overload. The ship was loaded with potassium nitrate fumigant and bound from Hundested to Seville when it was stopped in the old lock of the Kiel Canal in Brunsbüttel. As the port-side freeboard mark already showed tropical freshwater mark, the police carried out measurements of the freeboard. These showed that the seasonal minimum freeboard had fallen below 94 millimeters, which corresponded to an overload of 76.5 tons. According to the statement of facts, the Association for Transport and Traffic imposed a sailing ban until the over-loaded fertilizer was unloaded and ordered the confiscation of a security deposit in the amount of 2,400 Euros. The vessel should also be subjected to a Port State control in Brunsbüttel. The vessel was released after the draught was corrected and left the berth in Brunsbüttel-Ostermoor on Feb 9 at 5.45 p.m. It resumed the voyage with a revised ETA at Seville as of Feb 19, 1 p.m.
