A2SEA vessel in trouble again

A2SEA vessel in trouble again

15 people were evacuated last night from a wind turbine installation vessel in the North Sea off the west coast of Denmark.

The Sea Worker, owned by A2SEA and working for Dong Energy, snapped from its tow line, while being taken to Esbjerg from Frederikshavn, and subsequently ran aground a few kilometres off the coast.

No leaks have been reported. Authorities have deployed tugs to inspect the vessel.

The Sea Worker also ran into trouble in late November when it broke its mooring lines and collided with the ferry, Stena Nautica, in Denmark’s Grenaa port.
