On March 10, the 24 meter long, 119 dwt hopper dredger Sirius Høj capsized and sank outside the harbor at Bogense, Denmark. The Sirius Høj had lost stability when it made a turn to starboard. The dredger had its load shift and the vessel capsized on its port hull. The two crew on board were thrown into the icy water, but were able to climb up on the overturn hull. Authorities were alerted and dispatched a rescue helicopter to the scene. The helicopter arrived a short time later, but found the two crew had already been rescued by a small private vessel. The crew was taken to hospital, but no reports of injuries.
A response team was dispatched and monitored the Sirius Høj for any release of pollution. A salvage crane arrived the next day and righted the Sirius Høj. The Sirius Høj was towed back into Bogense harbor to a shipyard for repairs.
