Polish media reported that the leftover cargo had become wet, resulting in the production of hydrogen, which could cause an explosion.
Initially, when the ship arrived, some of the cargo was unloaded, using shovels.
However, the remaining cargo is stuck deep in the holds, requiring dockers to physically enter the vessel to be removed.
Dockers said that the situation is such that there is little oxygen in the cargo holds. ■
