The containership Mito Strait, which has a deadweight tonnage of 13.950, went aground on Monday morning, 3 nautical miles North of Æblø. The vessels rudder and propeller are so damaged that it is unable to sail by the use of its own force, and there is also a suspicion that the hull has been damaged.

The Danish environmental vessel Marie Miljø has spent most of the day at the container ship, which has leaked a small amount of diesel fuel. Following a stay in Bogense, Marie Miljø is heading back to the scene of the accident on Tuesday morning, where new underwater investigations will be carried out to determine if the container ship can be moved or if it is necessary to repair the vessel on the scene.

”We hope that the vessel can be hauled to Fredericia later today in order to be emptied for the freight onboard, and thereafter it will be towed to Fayard near Lindø in order to be repaired” says, Milan Holck Nielsen, Chief of Fyns Police Department, toTV2/Fyn.

Mito Strait, which is registered in Antigua and Barbuda, was heading from Hamborg to Fredericia when it went aground on Monday morning. The cause of the accident is unknown, but police has been onboard to report and investigate whether or not the vessel was sailed in a safe manner.

Mito Strait is often in Danish waters, where it operates as a feeder vessel for CMA CMG.
