Maritime Image of the Day: “Grounding of the CSCL Jupiter” (2017)

PortandTerminal.com, November 22, 2019

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – In 2017 the 366-meter CSCL Jupiter ran aground near Bath, Netherlands shortly after departing from the port of Antwerp as it was headed for Hamburg, Germany. At the time, the Antwerp Port Authority said the grounding resulted in the suspension of all shipping traffic to and from the port.

Multraship Towage & Salvage’s photo of the grounding of the 14,074-teu vessel ended up winning the International Salvage Union (ISU) photography competition in 2017, and rightly so. It’s a stunning photo that juxtaposes the immensity of a container ship with the people walking near it as well as the vessel’s helplessness when out of the sea.
