An inspection found the Ternvind had sustained some damage, but the hull had not been breached and no pollution was released. An hour later the Ternvind was refloated and proceeded to Lindoe for repairs. No reports of injuries.
The 130 meter long, 11,258 dwt tanker Ternvind collided with the 182 meter long, 6,559 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Stena Jutlandica off the island of Vinga near Gothenburg, Sweden. The tanker had departed from Gothenburg en route to Halmstad when it struck the portside of the Stena Jutlandica.

Many of the 536 passengers on board were awoken by the sound of the crash, but no reports of injuries. Authorities dispatched vessels to monitor the situation and inspect the vessels. No pollution was released. The Ternvind was last reported anchored off Vinga with no injuries or pollution released.
