A 17,000 dwt product tanker that ran aground in the St. Lawrence Seaway last week has been refloated and pulled free from the edge of the waterway.

The Marshall Islands flagged Chem Norma was refloated Sunday after running aground near Morrisburg, Ontario last Tuesday. The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) said the ship is undergoing an inspection process to ensure that it is ready to resume its transit.

The 145-meter Chem Norma, carrying refined petroleum products, went aground at 4:09 AM on Tuesday, May 29, due to an issue with its rudder. The vessel came to rest against the edge of a designated anchorage area and was not blocking any traffic. No injuries or pollution have been reported.

Among the federal and provincial authorities involved in the response were The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation, Transport Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, Environment and Climate Change Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.
