On January 13th 2011, the inland tanker vessel „Waldhof“ capsized just in front of the famous Loreley cliff. Its payload – 2.377 tons of sulphuric acid – was not stored due to stability criteria and caused rolling of the ship‘s body on this nautically demanding track. Two sailors died. Danger of explosion complicated the progress of the salvage crews, so it took over a month to get the ship out of the fairway. Because the waterway was blocked for several weeks, shipping companies and ports experienced a loss about at least 50 Million Euro.
