Handymax containership Tzini ran aground at Bangladesh’s Chittagong Port in heavy fog yesterday, hindering the shipping activities of the port.
According to Chittagong Port Authority, the 1,757 teu boxship was moving from the anchorage to berth at the port and it ran aground while avoiding a collision with a fishing trawler which suddenly came out of the fog.
The vessel was stuck on one side of the shipping channel of the port, and vessels were still able to pass through the other side. The port authority planned to refloat the vessel during the evening high tide.
The vessel is operated by Greek owner Eastern Mediterranean Maritime.
