VIDEO MSC containership other grounded vessels refloated in Port of Durban

The operation involved eight tugboats and lasted almost three hours.

Operations were resuming at ports in the province after being suspended during Tuesday's storm.

Three vessels that grounded in the Port of Durban have been refloated, including the containership MSC Ines that blocked the entrance to the port. Next to be secured was the tanker BOW TRIUMPH at Island View berth 4, followed by a second container vessel, SM NEW YORK, which was remoored and stabilised at the Durban Container Terminal. "TNPA has also managed to contain containers that had blown into the bay".

TNPA said the results of the sounding surveys that were conducted indicate that there is some obstruction on the seabed that could pose a risk to navigation.
