The 82 meter long fishing vessel Ro North ran aground off Roan in South-Trøndelag, Norway. The Ro North had suffered engine failure and went adrift in a strong breeze. The fish carrier was pushed by the wind up onto a nearby reef.
The crew of the Ro North were able to restart the engine, but need assistance in order to refloat the vessel. They requested assistance with the nearby vessel Aqua Power responding. When the Aqua Power arrived, the Ro North launched its tender to pass a towline over. The Aqua Power was able then to pull the Ro North off the reef.
One crewman of the Ro North sustained an injury during the salvage operation. He had been injured when a hawser line snapped and suffered several fractures. Authorities dispatched a helicopter to the scene and airlifted the injured crewman safely off the Ro North. He was later taken to hospital for treatment.
The Ro North proceeded to Bessaker where it will be inspected for damage. No reports of pollution released.
