Supramax hard aground

A UK-managed bulker has run hard aground in the Kadet Trench off Denmark.

It could take two weeks to shift the 57,000–dwt supramax Almeria (built 2010), which got stuck on Saturday, Danish media reported.

The vessel will have to be lightered before it can be refloated.

The bulker, managed by Ocean Agencies of the UK, is fully laden.

An anti-pollution ship was on the scene as a precaution.

Almerica was heading from Gdynia in Poland.
