Forty containers fell into water, Rotterdam



Forty empty containers fell into water from a container ship in Amazonehaven, Maasvlakte, Rotterdam, late at night Jul 20 Jul 21, under unknown circumstances. The ship wasn’t identified, but it was mentioned, in Dutch media reports, that the ship is inland. As of 0330 UTC Jul 21, there were several Dutch inland container ships in Amazonhaven, one COMIENZO (ENI 02329316) being berthed in the area where apparently, containers recover operation is under way.

Late last night at Rotterdam port, the inland container vessel COMIENZO lost approximately empty 40 containers overboard during cargo operations.
The link provided below accesses a local media report (in the original Dutch) which includes a video clip. A rough translation of the article into English is provided here:
"In the port of Rotterdam, about 40 empty sea containers from an inland vessel have fallen and ended up in the water tonight. That happened in the Amazonehaven on the Maasvlakte.
During the loading and unloading of the ship, something went wrong, causing the dozens of containers to end up in the water. What exactly went wrong is not clear. Employees of the port of Rotterdam have pushed the containers aside with boats, in order to prevent them ending up on the sailing route.
No one was injured in the accident."
