Tanker stuck in the Rhine recovered

2021-10-11T10:01:51.665Z

A tanker that got stuck in the Rhine was recovered near Oberwesel on Monday morning. The ship, loaded with almost 1,300 tons of diesel, got stuck on Sunday evening. The reason for this was that it had to stop because of an oncoming ship, as Peter Knopp from the St. Goar water police announced on Monday. As a result, the rudder power was lost and the current drove the ship onto a rocky middle distance, where it got stuck.
