Noway frigate sinking: 'No control' over leak of KNM Helge Instad

Noway frigate sinking: 'No control' over leak of KNM Helge Instad

An image published by Norwegian broadcaster NRK showed that water had nearly reached the level of the frigate's helicopter platform. Its crew of 137 had been evacuated, rescue leader Ben Vikoeren at the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre for southern Norway said.

According to Rystad Energy, "The frigate Helge Ingstad sustained severe damage in the collision, which occurred only about 15 minutes after the tanker TS Sola, carrying approximately 600,000 barrels of oil, set sail under tow from Equinor's Sture terminal".

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.

The Malta-flagged tanker, Sola TS, was not damaged and its 23-man crew remained on board.

Eight people on the KNM Helge Instad were injured in the 4am collision said Rear Adm. Nils Andreas Stensoenes, the head of Norway's navy.

Eirik Walle, with the rescue center, told Norwegian news agency NTB that the collision caused an opening in the frigate's hull and "it is taking in more water than they can pump out". The Maltese-flagged ship was loaded with crude oil en route to Britain.

Thugs Of Hindostan full movie leaked online
In his earlier opinions, Adarsh had mentioned that Thugs of Hindostan could earn as much as Rs 50 crore on its opening day. Though the trailer of Thugs of Hindostan intrigued the viewers and set hopes high, the reviews are contrary.

Aerial footage taken by Norwegian coastal administration aircraft during the day shows the frigate partially submerged sitting on her starboard side on the rocks.

Some 10,000 liters (2,642 gallons) of ship's fuel and helicopter fuel is reported to have leaked into the sea.

"A small oil slick from the frigate has been detected, but nothing large", the official added.

Norway's Accident Investigation Board said a towboat was also involved in the accident.

Production at a number of surrounding North Sea oil and gas facilities was temporarily stopped after the collision as a precautionary measure but has now resumed.

The Helge Instad is 442 feet long and was built by Spanish shipbuilder Navantia in 2009. He declined to comment on what would happen to the weapons on board the ship.
