The 155 meter long, 20500 dwt freighter BBC Bunde became disabled in Kiel Canal near Brunsbüttel, Germany. The BBC Bunde had suffered engine failure and the crew were unable to restart the engines. Two tugs were dispatched and took the freighter under tow back to Brunsbüttel. The vessel remained in port for several hours until repairs were completed. The BBC Bunde then continued its journey through the canal the following day en route to its final destination at Ronnskar. No reports of injuries, damage, or pollution released.
