Brand new fish carrier grounding, Norway
Brand new fish carrier RONIA DIAMOND ran aground on a rocky shallow north of Sortland, Norway, in the morning Dec 13. Vessel managed to come off rocks by own means, in about an hour or less than an hour, and headed for Sortland for survey, escorted by salvage boat RS Knut Hoem. Underwater survey, carried out at Sortland, found underwater hull damages, understood dry docking required. Grounding is said to be caused by miscalculation of tidal depth change. RONIA DIAMOND left Sortland after survey and as of morning Dec 14 was heading for Bodoe, Norway.
