General cargo ship MAXIMA, berthed at Waalhaven, Rotterdam, developed a heavy starboard side list in the evening Jul 21. Water ingress in cargo hold was is thought to be the problem. Tugs and patrol boats were deployed, and additional pumps delivered, to right the ship. Situation was taken under control, as of 0440 UTC Jul 22 there were no tugs/boats at her side, while she remained in the same position.
