Stranded container barge refloated, moved after running aground on Quadra Island

The Canadian Coast Guard says a stranded container barge has been refloated, after running aground off Quadra Island over the weekend.

The Nana Provider became stuck just before 8 p.m. on Saturday on the southwest coast of the island between Quathiaski Cove and Yaculta.

A Coast Guard spokesperson said the barge has now been moved and secured in Campbell River.

The agency added that no marine pollution had been observed during the operation, but that it was continuing to monitor the situation.

Divers have been working since the weekend to assess the damage and determine the best way to refloat the vessel.
