Tug pushed sinking barge onto sandbank
On Feb 26, 2014, the "Multratug 20" was tasked to the sinking Belgian hopper barge "Joro", 1774 nt (built 1965 Lambrechts/Boom) of the Group de Cloedt in Gent, jointly with the lifeboat "Zeemannshoop" of the KNRM-Station Breskens and the patrol boat "RWS 78" on the Wester Scheldt at the Hooge Plate. They were alerted at 9:15 a.m. and proceeded to the sinking site at the Hoofdplaat, east of the port of Breskens. The lifeboat ensured that everyone was safe. The pusher tug which was carrying the barge had its propeller fouled by driftgood. The lifeboat took the tug alongside to keep it from drifting before another barge took over. The tug of Multraship managed to pulled the half sunken barge which was carrying a cargo of sand onto a sandbank. The tug returned to Flushing then.
