The 132 meter long, 8446 dwt container ship Sirrah allided with the tug Vorwarts on the Kiel Canal at Brunsbüttel, Germany. The Sirrah had just entered the canal from the lock when it suffered an engine failure allowing the vessel to go adrift. The crew attempted to do an emergency anchoring, but the Sirrah continued until it struck the moored Vorwarts. The tug’s hull was dented resulting with an auxiliary engine being torn from its mounts. No reports of injuries or pollution being released. Tugs towed the Sirrah to a nearby quay. The water police is conducting an investigation into the incident. Reports state the engine failure on the Sirrah was due to a problem with the lubrication oil system.
