Since 12:35 the Rhine has once again been open to shipping.

The vessel which had run aground was towed back into the navigation channel by 3 tugs, after the liquid cargo of c. 240 metric tons of sulphuric acid had been pumped off into another tank vessel.

The "Synthese III" was then taken to Duisburg, where she will be inspected for damage, and any necessary repairs will be carried out.
