Ship investigated in Strå after salvage
The "Nemuna" remained at the wharf in Strå while representants of the Classification Society investigated the ship on Mar 5. A decision whether the ship may continue its voyage to Tornio was not expected before Mar 6. The ship had suffered a crack in a ballast water tank that posed, however, no danger.
Nemuna stuck for two days in the Fårö Sound
The "Nemuna" ran aground enroute Szczecin-Tornio on Mar 2 at 6.10 p.m. in the Fårö Sound. The Swedish Coast Guard immediately dispatched the boats "KBV 001" and "KBV 045" from Slite and also sent the "KBV 046" and "KBV 285" as well as the "KBV 002" from Visby. The cargo vessel had on board 81 tons diesel fuel and 7,5 tons lubricating oil. It suffered a small leak in a ballast tank in the bow. Divers surveyed the hull on Mar 3 and found the ship resting on the bottom with its port side. A surveillance flight took place twice a day, but no spill was monitored. The Coast Guard laid out oil booms. Wind on scene was North with 12 m/sec. On Mar 4 at 11.15 a.m. the ship could be pulled off, and at 12.20 the Coast Guard ended its rescue operation.
