#Grounding - APL Vanda, a 14,000TEU capacity containership was being checked for damage on Sunday after a loss of propulsion that left the ship grounded for two hours just outside the port of Southampton.

The NOL-owned vessel was freed from Bramble Bank by tugs and towed into port where it berthed in the early hours.

An APL spokesperson said the ship had been under pilotage when the incident occurred at 2200 hours local time on Saturday evening. The Singapore-flagged ship was freed about two hours later.

Afloat adds that APL Vanda (bound for Hamburg) is today still docked in Southampton from where over a year ago the Hoegh Osaka, a car transporter ran aground also on Bramble Bank with a 45 degree list.

Subsequently the vessel shifted position in the Solent before eventually taken into safety with a tow to the major container port.
