On November 22, the 64 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Fedjefjord ran aground off Sævrøy, Norway. The ferry was on its scheduled route when it grounded a few meters from the pier at Sævrøy. The ferry’s keel and propellers sustained damage resulting in hydraulic oil to be released. No reports of injuries to the five passengers and seven crew on board. All the passengers were later safely evacuated by rescue boats to shore. Authorities placed booms around the Fedjefjord to contain the pollution.
The following day the ferry was pulled free by a tug and towed to Laksevåg to unload vehicles before proceeding to Bergen for repairs. Reports state the propeller had broken off the vessel and remained on the sea floor.
