A 278-meter containership had to be refloated Wednesday from a sandy bank near Prince Rupert Harbour, BC after running aground as it maneuvered around a small fishing boat.
According to the Prince Rupert Port Authority, the containership, known as the M/V Hanjin Geneva, ran aground on a sand bar near the entrance of the harbor at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday while trying to avoid the fishing vessel. The Vancouver Sun reports that the ship was piloted by a B.C. coastal pilot at the time of the incident.
The M/V Hanjin Geneva was refloated early Wednesday and was assisted by tugs to the Fairview Container Terminal where it will be be inspected. Authorities do not anticipate any damage and no one was injured in the incident.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said it has deployed a team to investigate the grounding. No word yet on the status of the fishing vessel.
