An 80-meter-long coaster ran sailed aground inKalundborg Harbor at Gisseløre on Saturday evening at around 21 o'clock. Police officers from Central and West Zealand assessed that the ship’s Russian captain was influenced by alcohol and that he had to deliver a blood test.

"We went along with people from the navy and found out that the captain was influenced by alcohol," says Arne Aabech, Deputy Chief of the Central and West Sealand Police to sn.dk.

The blood test result is expected on Monday. Therefore, the ship cannot sail any further and is still in Kalundborg Harbor. The ship, named Norrvik, is operated by Baltic Shipping Company, headquartered in Hundested. The captain, however, is Russian and the other crew is also foreign.
Where they exactly come from, the police will not disclose.

Norrvik is at 3,254 DWT and sails under the Isle of Mans flag. The ship was built in 1979.
