The 101 meter long, 5541 dwt container ship Pioneer Bay suffered an engine room failure and became disabled off at The Sund in Norway. The crew quickly dropped the anchors before the vessel drifted within meters of going aground. The lifeboat Simrad Buholmen towed the Pioneer Bay back into deeper water. The crew later was able to restart the engines and the vessel continued on its voyage. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution being released.
