The NACC Argonaut, a cement carrier, has run aground near Cornwall Island on the St. Lawrence Seaway in Ontario. The incident has temporarily suspended vessel traffic in the affected area, causing delays for nine upbound and six downbound ships. Salvors are preparing to refloat the vessel, and photos from the scene show that the ship has taken on a slight list to port. The Canadian Coast Guard reports that there has been no breach in the hull, and all onboard are safe. The NACC Argonaut is a 14,000 dwt cement carrier operated by NovaAlgoma, a Luxembourg-Canadian joint venture.
