On May 24 at 1 p.m. the "Perkredes - RI 450" was raised by the Storm Marine from the bottom of the port of Hvide Sande; however, it was doubtful whether she would be going to sail again. The vessel wich usually weighs 32 tons had a weight of 100 tons when lifted by a mobile crane of the Hvide Sande Ship Yard due to the water on board. Jan Kristensen, who owned the ship for the last 37 years, witnessed the operation.
The Danish Maritime Authority was on site to gather information for an accident investigation report which can take from five to eight months.

Finnlines starts new direct service between Helsinki and Aarhus
Finnlines is reshuffling its services between Denmark and Finland and provides as of 28 May, 2018 direct service between Helsinki and Aarhus, the company said in its press release.
There will also be a direct connection between Aarhus and Uusikaupunki, which offers new possibilities for cargoes between Denmark and Western Finland. Turku will be available via transhipment in Travemünde
The new weekly service between Travemünde and Aarhus is especially suitable for all kinds of rolling cargo, particularly for high and heavy cargo unable to cross the Kiel Canal bridge due to weight limitations.
The transit times will be shorter with direct departures, please see attached schedule.
