General cargo vessel Green Atlantic suffered engine failure in the evening Mar 2 in Lodingen waters, Vestfjorden, west of Narvik, Norway, Norwegian sea, and started to drift towards shallow waters. Pilot boat was dispatched to assist. Boat took freighter on tow and towed her to deep waters, while crew managed to fix problem, start the engine and resume voyage. Green Atlantic couldn’t drop anchor to prevent drifting, fearing it may damage several underwater cables. On a photo from Vol.no troubled Green Atlantic under pilot boat tow.
