Date: 14th December 2017    Type: Grounding  Voyage: USA to Japan 

Reports have been received that Liberian flag vessel KM LONDON (36400gt, built 2017), ran aground on the Columbia River near Crims Island on 14 December 2017

The vessel was laden with wheat. The Columbia River pilot aboard the vessel notified the Coast Guard of the grounding at 2010hrs.

The vessel was originally taking on water in two forward compartments but crewmembers aboard the vessel were able to control the water ingress.

The shipowners worked with the Coast Guard and Captain of the Port to identify the safest plan to re-float and repair the vessel, and she was successfully on Friday.

KM LONDON is now being assisted by three tugs to Longview, Washington, where she will moor and receive additional damage assessments. The cause of the incident is under investigation.
