Grounded Container Ship Re-floated

Tuesday, September 18, 2007
An 872-ft. container ship that went aground on the Columbia River near St. Helens, Ore., was re-floated. The Korean flagged container ship, Hanjin Beijing, became grounded near river mile 84. There are 15 crew members aboard.

Coast Guard Investigators, Marine Inspectors and four tugboats were responding to assess the vessels situation when the vessel re-floated due to changing river and tide conditions. Tugs will escort the vessel to Kalama, Wash., where it will undergo a damage survey prior to departing for Japan, its next port of call.

There is no sign of pollution and initial tank soundings and damage assessments have determined that the vessel is not taking on water. No injuries have been reported.
