On 4 March, a soy vessel has been stranded at São Francisco do Sul port, Brazil, Reuters reported. In fact, the vessel “Aeolian Grace” was loaded with some 65.000 tonnes of soybeans, but a maneuvering problem resulted it unable to leave the port.
According to the Brazil Port Authority, it is not identified whether there were any damages, while they are no any spills reported yet.
