Czech T-72 ARVs pull stuck cargo ship


first of all a thanks to SilentStalker senpai for sharing this with me.

In Dresden, Germany a cargo ship with 800 tons of salt got stuck on a sand bank under a bridge for nearly a week which stopped the traffic in the area. The authorities had to extract the salt first and then called in 2 T-72 ARVs from Czech Republic to pull the ship.

ČSPL , the company owner of the cargo ship stated that the ship wasn’t overloaded and that it navigated 150-180cm deep, the river area according to German media is 142cm. Apparently this is not the first time it happens, last year another CZ cargo ship with 1.100 tons of soybean got stuck in the same manner.

Experts started examining the local, they are worried that these close encounters with the cargo ships are damaging the historic bridge stability by cracking and losing pillar stones.

Seems like this will keep on happening, maybe they should start prohibiting cargo ships to circulate or higher the river levels?
