The 67 meter long self-propelled barge Risico collided with a dredge on a canal near Buitenkaag, Netherlands. The hull of the Risico was damaged with a 30 cm hole above the waterline. No reports of injuries. The Risico’s fuel tank was ruptured and the vessel released 1000 litres of diesel fuel into the canal. A 900 meter long sheen developed around the vessel before the leak could be patched. Authorities placed booms to contain the pollution. Clean up efforts should take a few days to complete.
