Ro-Ro Ship Runs Aground off Kinsarvik, Norway

The 107- meter long Multi-Purpose/Ro-Ro cargo ship Norrland with 12 crew onboard is reported to have hit a sandy shallow causing the vessel to run aground offshore Kinsarvik, Norway.


The Norrland was heading to Boliden Odda from Haugesund when the grounding occurred.

There were no injuries or pollution reported.

The extent of the damage is about to be inspected by state divers.

The vessel was refloated with the assistance of a tug and anchored near Ullensvang, where it is pending inspection, after which it would be able to resume its voyage.

Antigua & Barbuda-flagged vessel was built in 1990 and is owned and operated by German shipping company Brise Bereederung.
