On December 8, the 110 meter long self-propelled tanker-barge Vidi suffered damage while on the Rhine near Rheinbrohl. The Vidi was proceeding when a number of barges broke free from its moorings due a sudden rise in the river. The barges were loaded with 2300 tons of sunflower drifted into the fairway and struck the Vidi in the bow. The Vidi sustained significant damage and water ingress, but the cargo tanks remained intact. The Vidi proceeded to Andernach where it unloaded its cargo before heading to the repair yard. No reports of injuries. Reports state damage was over 100,000 €.
