Passenger ship ORTELIUS, Arctic ocean

Passenger ship ORTELIUS with 146 people on board suffered engine failure at night June 3 in Hinlopen Strait between Spitsbergen and Nordaustlandet, Svalbard Archipelago, Norway, Arctic ocean. Offshore supply tug POLARSYSSEL (IMO 9690949) was sent to assist, and though problem can be fixed by crew, it was decided to tow ORTELIUS to Longyearbyen. Probably problem was fixed, at least partially, because in the morning June 5 ORTELIUS was proceeding at some 9 knots speed.
