According to local news, on 5th July, an LNG bunker vessel (LNGBV) suffered a grounding in a storm off the Netherlands.
n particular, the 7,500-cbm Kairos (built 2018) got stuck on the canal embankment at the Averijhaven in Velsen-Noord near Amsterdam.
As informed, the ship had arrived in the Amerikahaven in Amsterdam from Ijmuiden that day and was heading back out to the North Sea.
