The 135 meter long, 3797 ts, barge Chilandia went aground on the Rhine River near Dettenheim,Germany. The location was near the position where the Onderneming IV had gone aground a few days before (see post). The vessel was freed after hundreds of tons of its cargo of cellulose bales were lightened. Damage is reported to be around 30.000 (30,000) €. Reports state the master ignored an order by the water and shipping administration. The authority had conducted soundings at the grounding site and is now considering restrictions on shipping.
