Athens: A crew of 84 were today evacuated from a multipurpose offshore vessel that caught fire while docked at Peterhead Harbour, Scotland.
The crew were taken to the Peterhead Fishermen’s mission. There were no injuries, and the crew look ready to get back to work, Peterhead’s harbourmaster Captain John Forman told Splash this morning.
“We are still waiting for the incident reports,” Captain Forman said. “It was a small fire, believed to have started in the switchboard.”
The Fugro Symphony (6,500 dwt, built 2011; pictured) caught fire around 3am local time on Wednesday morning.
It took two hours for the 35 firemen from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to bring the fire under control, using five appliances and a foam unit. An incident support unit was also at the scene.
