March 1st 2020:

“General cargo ship NATALY (IMO 9370288) was in a near collision with RoRo cargo ship NORRLAND (IMO 8818764) on the Elbe off Brunsbüttel in the early morning of March 1st, while en route from Norrköping to Teignmouth. The Ukrainian captain steered the vessel towards the radar line in the middle of the fairway. The Norrland was approaching Hamburg. During the change of the pilot off Brunsbüttel it was observed that there was a dangerous course. The pilot change was immediately aborted and the master of the Norroland changed course to avoid the potential collision. The traffic control filed a charge against the master of the Nataly for endangering ship traffic. The vessel was ordered to berth in Cuxhaven, but was held only for two and a half hours. At 05:10 she resumed her voyage to Teignmouth with an ETA of March 4th. There was required to deposit a safety fine of €3,000 Euro.”
