The 95 meter long, 4900 dwt cargo vessel Bremer Martha collided with the 158 meter long, 18425 dwt container ship Pollux on the Kiel Canal near Brieholz, Germany. The Bremer Martha had suffered a power blackout and drifted into the path of the Pollux. The Pollux had only slight minimal damage and was able to resume its voyage. The Bremer Martha came to rest on the northern bank of the canal. A tug was requested and freed the Bremer Martha and proceeded to tow the cargo vessel to Rendsburg. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
