The 171 meter long, 20070 dwt container ship A La Marine went aground on the Kiel Canal near Schülp, Germany. The A La Marine had lost steering after a bow thruster caused an overload in the electrical system. The vessel veered off to port and ran into some pilings. The crew were able to make repairs and refloated the vessel under its own power. The A La Marine proceeded to Brunsbüttel to be inspected. No reports of injuries and minor damage to the vessel. Damage to the pilings were not reported.
