On July 28, the 110 meter long self-propelled barge Baroda ran aground on the Rhine off Mainz, Germany. The Baroda had departed from Mainz with 1600 tonnes of soy products when it became stuck just outside the industrial port. Another vessel which had come from Basel came to the Baroda’s aid. The vessel pulled the Baroda free later the same day. The Baroda proceeded to Duisburg where it was inspected by authorities. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
