The Panama-flagged 225-meter-long dry cargo ship Star of Sawara has sailed aground south of Gedser and is currently detained until a rescue plan is ready. According to AIS data, the ship was on its way to New Orleans when it came off course and sailed aground yesterday at 13 o'clock.



The ship is 13,2 meters deep and should thus stay in the deepwater route in the Fehmern Belt between Falster and Vorpommern, but came off course and sailed aground, the Armed Forces Operations Center reported to DR.dk
Star of Sawara is loaded with fertilizer, but there is no indication that it represents an environmental risk.
However, the Armed Forces Operations Center has sent a plane over the area, and one of the defense's environmental ships is on site.
Now the Armed Forces Operations Center Center awaits a rescue plan from the ship's operating company and insurance company before it can be released. A tugboat from Rostock is located right next to the ship, according to BoatWatch.
According to the Maritime Connector, the 76.553 dwt ship is owned by the Panama-registered company, Kashima Naviera, which belongs to the Japanese Chiba Shipping Group. The ship is operated by Pioneer Marine Services, Chennai, India.
