Bulk Coal Carrier Shen Neng 1 taking in 10 tons of water Daily

Ten tons of water is leaking into the stricken bulk coal carrier that ran aground Australia’s Queensland coast last month.

“Green groups have expressed concerns the Chinese-registered ship is taking on too much water into its coal areas and sinking at a rate of about 10cm a day,” a report said.

The 230-meter long coal tanker Shen Neng 1, which ran aground on a reef about 70km east of Great Keppel Island, off the coast of Queensland, Australia, were taken by Maritime Safety Queensland on Sunday (p.m.), 4 April 2010. Images may be subject to copyright. Click images to enlarge.

Cargo ship runs aground off Nassau

A German freight ship en route to Nassau has run aground on a sandbar off the coast of New Providence, a report said.

“The 105-meter Stadt Hannover, operated by German shipping firm Thien-Heyenga, ran ‘hard aground’ – which means it can’t free itself without help – on Sunday some 17 nautical miles north of Nassau, thankfully with its crew suffering no injury and the vessel remaining undamaged.”
