Tokyo: The 10,292 dwt Marine Diamond (built 2005) was refloated today having run aground on Wednesday in Nagoya port. The ship was laden with a cargo of timber.

Authorities waited overnight for a high tide, and with a tug, the Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha-controlled vessel was moved. There have been no reports of any damages or leaks. The Hong Kong-flagged ship is now underway, heading to Yokkaichi.

K Line officials did not reply to enquiries made by Splash.
