WESER ORE ran aground 04.10.1999 at Tubarao, Brazil, and reported to have flooding damage with three ballast tonnes of ore will have to be removed before she can be refloated and work cannot commence until two floating cranes arrive from Rio de Janeiro. She was outward bound for Taranto, Italy, with 253096 tonnes of iron ore. Cargo has been transferred to the bulk carriers ALIANZA G - 1, NORSUL TUBARAO, MARCOS DIAS and NORSUL PIACAGUERA. She was refloated 27.11.1999 and reported under arrest. WESER ORE left Tubarao 28.12.1999 in tow for Beilun, China, where the cargo of iron ore was discharged. Sold to Chinese breakers and arrived at Beilun 06.04.2000.
