Megaship pulled off sandbar by fleet of tug boats

     CSCL Jupiter

The grounding of a megaship caused a temporary, but very expensive, suspension of operations in the port of Antwerp, Belgium, the second largest container port in Northern Europe.

A fleet of sixteen tug boats was needed to free the stranded megaship, the CSCL Jupiter, which ran aground on a sandbar earlier this month while exiting the port.

The incident renews concerns about the high cost of megaship salvage operations, which in this case included not only the high cost of the salvage operation, but also the much larger losses absorbed by the port when it had to suspend operations.
