The expedition ship “Fridtjof Nansen” reported grounding near the port of Måløy early on Wednesday morning, the shipping company Hurtigruten said on dpa request. Bad weather with strong winds prevailed in the region.

There were 233 guests and 165 crew members on board, nobody was harmed. There is no danger to her or the ship. Måløy is located on the west coast of Norway about 200 kilometers north of Bergen.

However, the incident damaged the propulsion system and the hull of the “Fridtjof Nansen”, according to Hurtigruten. This damage is now checked. As recordings on Norwegian radio showed, the ship was stable on a quay in the port of Måløy on Wednesday. The guests should disembark during the day and initially be accommodated in hotels. According to the Norwegian news agency NTB, the ship, which was only a few years old, set sail in Hamburg after the New Year and was scheduled to return on January 16 after several stops on the Norwegian coast. dpa
