Door sterke wind in aanvaring met kade

Cargo ship allided with quay in Skagen

In the early morning of Nov 6, 2016, the "Vechtborg,", which had previously
arrived at Skagen coming from Lovisa, allided with a quay at the port of Skagen

After the accident, the vessel was moored just south of the port and waiting
to be inspected by divers

The unloaded ship had been docked in the port, but due to the strong wind
in the area it had been decided to tow it out of the port

During the towing operation one of the ropes broke at 12.45 a.m.
After the allision it was decided to tow the ship to the position south of Skagen

The environmental ship "Gunnar Thorson" has been sent to the area,
but there was no spill reported / Vesseltracker.com
