06-01-2017 08:00:00


The Danish coaster Frem Nordica sprung a leak on Tursday while it was in the German waters during a voyage from Amsterdam to Aarhus. Large amounts of water entered the ship through a leak in the bow.

The water intrusion drew the stern down, but the crew managed to get Frem Nordica to safety in the German port city of Cuxhaven, before the dangerous situation developed into a shipwreck.

In the harbor lay the bunker vessel Herta ready and by using its powerful pumps it quickly succeeded in pumping the water - about 25 cubic meters - out of the Danish coaster.

The German Wasserschutzpolizei are investigating Frem Nordica to find the cause of the leak.

Maritime Denmark spoke with the ship's captain on Friday:

"I have the authorities on board right now, so I must just wait," he stated by telephone from Cuxhaven.

Nor the ship's charter Baltica Shipping, can provide more information on the situation.

"The phones chime right now. We will return if we have something to say ", said Baltica Shipping, based in Hundested.

Frem Nordica is owned by the company Frem in Dronninglund. The 79 meter long coaster, built in Holland in 1986 and has a tonnage of 1,601 DWT, is the company's only ship.
