"In the night between friday and saturday, the heavy load carrier Zhen Hua 10 (IMO: 7917410, Port of Registry: Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines), which was anchored near Rotterdam, ran adrift in storm conditions and floated towards the Dutch coast, where she finally ran aground at the 'Slufter'-beach at the Maasvlakte. For a while it appeared that the vessel was in danger of capsizing, but she was soon stable being stuck in the sand. The Zhen Hua 10 is loaded with 5 containercranes (of which one is destined for the new Euromax-terminal at Rotterdam) from Shanghai and has a crew of 33, which are still on board and not injured.The Zhen Hua 10 is 244 metres long, 40 metres wide, has a maximum draught of 8.5 metres and a deadweight of 45323 tonnes. She was built in 1981 by Astilleros y Talleres del Noroeste S.A., Spain as an oil tanker and was converted to a heavy load carrier in 2005. The vessel is operated by Shanghai Zhenhua Shipping Co. Ltd, China." in
