Sea Worker finally capsized

Tuesday, 9 February, 2016 - 10:30

After grounding a few days before, installation vessel Sea Worker now capsized off the coast at Nymindegab south of Hvide Sande. According to ship owner A2Sea, no pollution has been detected from the vessel.

Due to harsh weather, Sea Worker has capsized during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday last week. The night between 26th and 27th January, Sea Worker had been grounded off the coast at Nymindegab south of Hvide Sande after the tow line between Sea Worker and the tug boat had been broken and the vessel had been drifting towards the coast.

A special operations team and vessels Esvagt Connector and Emile Robin are onsite closely following the situation. Moreover, environmental vessel Gunnar Seidenfaden is on call in the Port of Hvide Sande ready to respond if any development occurs. According to A2Sea, no pollution has been detected from the vessel after capsize. Focus remains on preventing any oils or fuels leaking from the vessel.

Next step is removal of all oil and fuels from Sea Worker as soon as weather permits.
