  • Helge Ingstad: Warship collides with tanker in fjord

It is planned that the tanker will return to the dock for an inspection. Seven people were slightly injured. The crew of 127 was evacuated amid fears the ship will sink.

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 army said. The military said the ship, which had recently taken part in the vast North Atlantic Treaty Organisation drill Trident Juncture, is taking on water.

"It took on a lot of water and there is a real danger that it sinks where it is", an official for the Sola rescue centre told AFP.

According to reports from the rescue crews, seven people have been lightly injured in the collision, and there has been no oil spilled from the tanker, which suffered a lot less damage than the frigate, which was returning from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military drill. "There is no control over the leak and the stern is heavily in the sea".

Details of the accident were still unclear.

"According to our assessments, there's no reason to believe that anything, like an accident, could happen with the weapons" on board, he said.

The Sture terminal is a major tanker port, with nearly 25% of Norway's oil production passing through the facility. Tanker said not to suffer serious damages, as of 0530 UTC she was near collision site, moving in northern direction at dead slow speed, escorted by tug.

Norwegian Navy frigate HNOMS HELGE INGSTAD (F313), displacement 5290, commissioned 2009, complement 120, armament missiles, torpedoes, guns, helicopter.

The Sture oil terminal and the Kollsnes gas processing plant were shut down as a precautionary measure.

The Accident Investigation Board added that because the tanker is Maltese-registered, the Marine Safety Investigation Unit (MSIU) of Malta will also participate in the investigation.

Johan Marius Ly of the Norwegian Coast Guard said the extent of leakage was unknown.

Several offshore rigs that were pumping their production into the Sture terminal, a major tanker port for crude oil, temporarily suspended the flow, Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv reported.
