As reported online by Bulk Materials International, the incident occurred when the powerful Storm Xavier swept across the German coast during the first week of October.


At the time of writing, clearance work on the pier had been completed, and underwater work was underway. Wagenborg is deploying a team of divers and its BARGE 8, a 100m x 33m barge equipped with two 200t crawler cranes, assisted by its tug WATERSTROOM. The operation is supervised by Möller Survey Marine of Bremerhaven.


Rhenus expects to be able to quickly resume operations on the pier using the two undamaged cranes and the conveyor belts.
