Oil tanker & Norwegian Navy frigate ‘collide’ off country’s coast, 7 reported injured
"[The collision is] fairly unusual given that one is a highly modern military vessel - the pride of the Norwegian navy - which should detect and avoid a huge tanker".
Eight people received minor injuries in the accident, which took place shortly after 4:00 am (0300 GMT) in a busy waterway in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen, Norway's military said.
Although the tanker was undamaged, the £465 million frigate took on large quantities of water and was in danger of sinking when the captain took her into shallower water before running her aground. Two of them were taken to a nearby hospital.
Johan Marius Ly of the Norwegian Coast Guard said the 442ft frigate, which had recently taken part in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation drill Trident Juncture, was listing, adding: "We have been told that there is a leak from the frigate".
The Maltese flagged tanker, Sola TS, was undamaged and its 23-man crew unhurt. Norway's Accident Investigation Board said a towboat was also involved in the accident, but didn't say how. The shipping site Sysla reported the tanker had been loaded with crude oil and was on its way to Britain.
An image of the ship tipped to one side was posted with the comment.
A Norwegian Navy frigate is about to sink after being hit by an oil tanker on Thursday while docked in a habour.
The Navy quickly evacuated all the crew except for 10 essential staff members to prevent a possible fuel leak.
These included the Sture export oil terminal, the Kollsnes gas plant and several offshore oilfields, all of which resumed operation later this afternoon.
The frigate, which recently took part in a major North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military exercise, was aground and tilting on one side, live television pictures showed. The Marine Safety Investigation Unit (MSIU) of Malta will also participate in the investigation, the AIBN added.
