The 100 meter long, 5565 dwt cargo ship Samskip Akrafell ran aground onto a small rocky reef between Reyðarfjörður and Fáskrúðsfjörður, Iceland. The Akrafell sustained hull damage resulting in water ingress. The 12 crew on board immediately attempted to contain the ingress, but the flooding could not be controlled with the vessel’s pumps. Authorities dispatched rescue vessels to the scene delivering more pumps to the Akrafell. No reports of injuries or pollution released. Divers will conduct an inspection of the hull before the vessel is pulled free and refloated on the following high tide.
