The 94 meter long, 4969 dwt freighter Norholm became disabled off Pentland Firth, Scotland. The Norholm engines had failed during a gale with heavy rain and 5 meter swells. The crew contacted the RNLI who launched the lifeboat out of Thurso. Luckily, the Norholm’s crew were able to restore partial engine power. The lifeboat escorted the Norholm to the safety of Scrabster harbour. All of the 7 crew on board were uninjured.
