Salvage will take a few days

Mon Sep 21 19:32:47 CEST 2020 Timsen

At least a few days will pass by before an attempt is made to refloat the 'Amorella'. On Sep 20 divers were still investigating the bottom of the ship, which has been breached in several places. It has been decided that the ferry will be repaired at Turku Repair Yard when it is pulled off the ground, but it is not known whether it will have to be towed, or can cover the stretch on its own. Only a small part of the crew has remained on board. Aboard the ferry were also about 40 trucks, most of them with general cargo. There was no loose cargo on board the ferry. There was no sign of pollution near the ship. Local authorities have launched an investigation into the incident in collaboration with the ferry's flag state. On Sep 22 the tugs 'Jupiter' (IMO: 9287431) and 'Kraft' (IMO: 7618399) had joined the 'Neptun'. The goal was to be able to move the ship from Järsö to the port of Långnäs, Åland on Sep 23. After that, the 'Amorella' will be taken to the shipyard in Naantali. The exact timetable has not been determined.

Ferry run aground

Sun Sep 20 22:36:36 CEST 2020 Timsen

The 'Amorella' was intentionally run aground in the Åland archipelago on Sep 20 with 280 people aboard. Patrol boats evacuated the passengers. The crew remained on board und kept the pumps running. The ferry was enroute from Turku to Stockholm with 80 crew and almost 200 passengers on board. Upon approaching Marihamn at 12 50 p.m. the ship ran aground in the Haesslo fjord in the passage between two rocks and was breached with ensuing strong water ingress. The ship was run aground off Järsö island. Oil booms were laid out by the Finnish Coastguard in the evening.
