  • aground - 2021 (on Po di Levante's access channel to Porto Levante)

28 March 2021Ship Grounding

On March 28, 2021, the cruise ship GNV Bridge was launched (floated out from drydock) at Visentini's shipyard in Porto Viro. While navigating on Po di Levante River (along the access channel to the Adriatic Sea/for sea trials), the vessel run aground on the seabed.

Having max draft 6,55 m (21 ft), the boat became stuck due to the channel's shallow depth at the time. For assistance were dispatched two tugboats, but the new ship remained grounded, waiting for the high tide. No hull damages (including water ingress) were reported.

At the time of the accident, despite being regularly dredged, the Tartaro-​Canalbianco-Po di Levante channel's depth was decreased due to recent storms caused by the Scirocco winds originating in the Sahara Desert.
