Updating the June 21 posting:
Press reports indicate that the ITB Philadelphia was severely damaged in the collision with Rhein Bridge. One of the tug's engine rooms was flooded from a hull puncture. As a result the vessel was declared a constructive total loss (i.e. it would cost more to fix than the vessel was worth). It was subsequently sold to Indian shipbreakers.
