The 79 meter long, 1061 dwt cargo vessel Frem Nordica suffered a leak on the Elbe near Cuxhaven while en route to Aarhus from Ijmuiden. The vessel had sustained water ingress in the bow thruster compartment. Pumps were unable to control the flooding causing the Frem Nordica to be down by the bow. The master of the vessel requested assistance. A pilot arrived and help guide the cargo vessel entering Cuxhaven. Reports state the Frem Nordica was able to berth a short time later. A support vessel arrived and started pumping water out from the hull. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
