The crew had remarked an increase of the ship's draught and found, that 400-500 cbm water had flooded the engine room.

The fire rescue was called to pump the oil contaminated water into tanks, divers investigated the hull and patched a leak.

On Monday (Apr 11) work was still ongoing. The ship had suffered a fire in the cargo of fertilizers in May 2015. It was unknown how much of the cargo was actually still inside the cargo holds.
