The 102 meter long self-propelled tanker-barge Piz Everest became disabled on the Maas River near Botlek Rotterdam, Netherlands. The Piz Everest suffered water ingress in the engine room and requested assistance. Two vessels from the port authority were dispatched with pumps. The pumps were able to keep the water ingress under control and the Piz Everest was towed to AVR Botlek. No reports of injuries.
