The Kiel Canal remains closed due to prevailing adverse weather and the instability of a damaged vessel involved in a collision yesterday, October 28.

Salvage works are currently underway. As the damaged vessel has not yet been stabilized sufficiently and bunker oil is penetrating into the Kiel Canal waters, the Canal Authority has decided to maintain the closure for another 24 hours until at least midday tomorrow, October 30.
