Britain’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency, MCA, reports that the Hoegh Autoliners ro-ro vessel Cuidad de Cadiz has run aground off Mostyn Harbour in North Wales. She remains in an upright position, with no reports of any damage or pollution.
Just before 2pm on Wednesday 30 January 2013, Liverpool Coastguard was advised that the Ciudad de Cadiz had gone aground off Mostyn Harbour on the Salisbury Bank, River Dee in North Wales.
The vessel had been berthed alongside in Mostyn Harbour when the mooring lines parted in 60 knot winds. She then drifted onto a sandbank.
Cuidad de Cadiz was built in 2009 as the third roro vessel to form part of the fleet dedicated to Airbus for the transportation of aircraft components between its different European production sites.
