11 August 2008Sea Pollution

On August 11, 2008, during refuelling in call port Sisimiut Greenland, around 10,000 litres / 2640 gallons of MDO (marine diesel oil) escaped into the harbour, casing an enormous spill. A local fire brigade team of 21 men worked through the night of Aug 12 to clean up the spillage.

28 December 2007Ship Collision / Allision

On December 28, 2007, due to engine failure, the ship suffered power loss for ~2 hours while navigating off Antarctic Peninsula (near Brown Bluff / Tabarin Peninsula). During that time, the vessel also lost propulsion and drifted toward an iceberg. In the collision, part of its railing and one lifeboat were damaged (completely destroyed).

After the power was restarted, the vessel headed to King George Island where was inspected for damages.

Hurtigruten canceled the next scheduled Antarctic cruise itinerary (departure from Ushuaia Argentina on January 2, 2008) allowing the vessel to enter drydock for repairs. The next scheduled voyage (departure January 10 from Ushuaia) remained as planned.
