01 April 2019Propulsion / Power Loss

In the morning on April 1, 2019, upon arrival in homeport Stromness, MV Hamnavoe required tug assistance for berthing after developing an engine problem. AT 11.30 am, the ferryboat Graemsay (1996-built, MMSI 235019173) was called to assist the cruise ship docking.

During the berthing, one of Hamnavoe's stern mooring lines snapped and the vessel pivoted out from its berth. MS Graemsay managed to push it back into position. Hamnavoe's engine malfunction was quickly fixed and the ship continued with its crossing schedule.
