The 64 meter long ro-ro ferry Kvam allided with the pier at Voksa, Norway.   The ferry suffered significant damage to its trapdoor.   No reports of injuries to the 10 passengers or the crew.   Vehicles were unloaded by the other ramp.    The Kvam was allowed to proceed under its own power to Kvamsøya where it unloaded the remaining passengers.   The Kvam was later taken out of service for repairs.   Reports state the cause of the allision was due to a technical fault.   A week earlier, the Kvam was in a similar incident when it struck the pier at Lepsøya, Norway.
