According to The Iran Project, the Iranian Navy’s first naval zone in Bandar Abbas said on Sunday that the accident happened when Sahand was deployed to a pier belonging to the Bandar Abbas maritime industries for repair.

Fortunately, the accident happened in shallow waters near the pier and the vessel is regaining its balance immediately, the Navy said.
