Greek tanker grounded in Storebaelt Danish Authorities is on alert after the grounding of a Greek owned tanker in Storebaelt yesterday. The Liberian-flagged tanker "Fotini Lady" ran aground on a voyage from Klaipeda, Lithuania, with a cargo of 63,000 tonnes of gas oil. The tanker is almost new and built with double hull, so there is no immediate danger of leaks from the cargo tanks. The tanker hit the bottom at Hatterbarn on the passage toward the Skaw apparently without a pilot on board. The "Fotini Lady" was delivered in February 2004 from STX Shipbuilding Co in Chinhae, Korea. It is of 71,865 DWT. Salvors are working with several solutions to get the tanker off the ground, most likely she will have some of the cargo transferred to a smaller tanker and then taken off with tugs.
