The 40 meter long fishing vessel Nordørn became disabled near Bear Island, Norway. The Nordørn had suffered engine failure and had gone adrift. The Norwegian Coast Guard vessel Barentshav was alerted and set course to intercept the Nordørn. After several hours, the Barentshav arrived and was able to take the Nordørn under tow. Both vessels proceeded back to port. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
The 92 meter long Norwegian Coast Guard vessel Barentshav went aground in the Andfjord while inspecting navigation lights. The Barentshav was requested to check on a report of a strange light off Andenes and was proceeding back to port when it went aground. Other Coast Guard vessels were onsite and pulled the Barentshav free a few hours later. The Barentshav was then towed to safe waters where divers inspected the hull for damage. No reports of injuries or pollution being released.
