Cargo Vessel Strikes Pier, Two Barges in Clatskanie

No pollution or injuries were reported, but one of the barges was pushed to shore by tugboat after papermill staff determined it might sink.

Damage at Papermill in Clatskanie

(ASTORIA, Ore.) - A cargo vessel carrying lumber struck a pier and two barges damaging a building at the Wauna Georgia Pacific papermill in Clatskanie, Ore., Friday.

The motor vessel Susaki Wing out of Panama struck the pier at approximately 5:53 p.m. after losing propulsion.

Coast Guard Sector Columbia River in Astoria dispatched an HH-60 helicopter crew and a 47-foot motor lifeboat crew to the scene. The Clatsop River Patrol and local EMS and fire crews were also on scene.

No pollution or injuries were reported, but one of the barges was pushed to shore by tugboat after papermill staff determined it might sink.

The Captain of the Port closed the area to deep draft vessels, but the waterway otherwise remained open. The cause of the propulsion loss is unknown, but will be investigated by Coast Guard vessel inspectors.
