  • ship collision - 2012 (with Urd ferry in port Travemunde)

  08 May 2012Ship Collision / Allision

On May 8, 2012, while entering port Travemunde, the ship collided with the Scandlines-owned ferry Urd. The accident was due to human error as Nils Holgersson's bridge crew failed to turn sufficiently. No injuries were reported.

The collision resulted in a 16 m2 (170 ft2) hole into Urd's hull, including vertical tear below waterline. The following investigation established that Nils Holgersson's engine wasn't in "harbour mode", which seriously limited its manoeuvrability and prevented the Captain from reversing the vessel. Sustaining only minor hull damages, Nils Holgersson was taken to Landskrona (Sweden), while the heavily damaged Urd remained in Travemunde for emergency repairs.
