15 January 2004Ship Grounding

On January 15, 2004, upon arriving from Seydisfjordur (Iceland), the ship ran aground after hitting rocks in Port Torshavn (Streymoy Island, Faroes).

The accident was due to strong winds in the harbor and resulted in severe hull damage (10 m / 30 ft long tear). The liner started to take on water and its engine room was flooded. All the passengers were offloaded. No injuries were reported.

Assisted by other vessels, the ferry was brought alongside and secured. Due to needed repairs, it was out of service until February. During the accident, the ferry operated on weekly crossings linking Torshavn with Hanstholm (Denmark) and Lerwick (Shetland Mainland, Scotland).
