Fire-damaged chemical ship MSC Flaminia docks in Germany

  • 9-11-2012

A badly damaged chemical container ship has arrived at the German port of Wilhelmshaven, after nearly two months of trying to find a country which would permit it to dock.

MSC Flaminia caught fire in the mid-Atlantic on 14 July. The stricken 85,823-tonne vessel was laden with a cargo of 2,876 containers, 149 being classed as dangerous goods.

The ship had originally been on its way from Charleston in the United States to the German port of Bremenhaven.
