Cement carrier runs aground off Swedish coast

Cement carrier runs aground off Swedish coast
Swedish-flagged cement carrier Sunnanvik (9,060 dwt, built 1978) ran aground late last night around 3 nm off Holmsund, Sweden.

According to local reports the vessel was laden with 2,500 tons of cement, and ran aground at Lillbådans lighthouse due to a technical failure. The vessel suffered damage to a ballast tank and was taking on water when rescue crews arrived at 10:30pm last night.

The 17 crew members were unharmed in the incident, and there was no oil leak reported.

The vessel, owned by SMT Shipping in Cyprus, is expected to be refloated by a salvage team today.
