The 105 meter long self-propelled tanker barge Trienke ran aground on the Rhine River near Lorchhausen, Germany. The Trienke was en route to Biersfelden from Amsterdam with 2428 tons of diesel fuel when it suffered engine failure and became disabled. The tanker drifted outside the fairway onto a sandbar. Two lighters were requested to pump some of the cargo off the tanker before any salvage attempt is made. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
