The film or webcam is Spanish, so most likely a Spanish harbour.

From the web site address it is the Port of Cartagena authority, could therefore possibly be Cartagena or Escombreras, ??

Thanks for this answer, so we know it was the Parsival, and the harbour is Cartagena, but after it is a "strange" circumstance; maybe falling asleep on the wheelhouse, and as well in the engineroom, because the engine still goes full ahead?
Here a "Spanish report", will translate it soon as possible:
UN BUQUE MERCANTE EMBARRANCA EN EL DIQUE DE CURRA EN SU MANIOBRA DE ENTRADA EN PUERTO - 02/11/2005
El buque mercante PARSIVAL de 88 metros de eslora embarrancó el pasado día 16 de Octubre en el dique de La Curra cuando hacía su maniobra de entrada al Puerto de Cartagena. Todo apunta a que la tripulación y oficiales del Parsival, de bandera de Antigua, se quedaron dormidos. El buque no respondió por radio a los continuos mensajes de los controladores de la Autoridad Portuaria y Salvamento Marítimo, tras detectar en las pantallas de sus radares que el buque no reducía su marcha conforme se aproximaba a Cartagena. Como consecuencia del accidente, el mercante sufrió en su casco tres grietas de un metro de longitud. Ninguno de sus tripulantes sufrieron heridas.
Pulsando en este enlace puede acceder al video del suceso captado por las cámaras del Centro de Control de la Autoridad Portuaria de Cartagena

He probably put the engine ahead again to keep her on the rocks. Otherwise, she would have slipped off
