“We are still examining the impact and we cannot make a statement yet,” EnBW’s spokeswoman said. She added that the platforms will be recovered when weather conditions allow.

The 35×11 meters large barge sprung a leak while being towed from Stralsund towards Kiel by Bösch tug, and sank almost four kilometers northwest of Darßer Ort. The cause of the damage remains unclear.
