3 Tugs Guard APL Vanda in its Journey


APL Vanda Leaves Southampton Dock


On Saturday, with a precautionary support of three tugs, APL Vanda left Southampton dock for Hamburg.

The 150,000-tonne ship lost power and hence required a “controlled grounding” to save it, last week at Bramble Bank, was tugged off by eight tug boats.

There were no reports of damage or pollution to the ship following the grounding.

After returning to Southampton, the vessel had initially been expected to leave for Germany at 17:20 after precautionary checks but was delayed to allow divers to check for damage to the hull.
