The Danish flagged tug Western Seqi has been sold to Norway and is now part of the tug fleet in Narvik, Norway. The Western Seqi was originally built for Norwegian Western Bulk ASA, Oslo, for a mining project in the Seqi Fjord in Greenland, but in 2010 the project was closed down and the tug returned to Svendborg, Denmark, for layup. The buyer in Narvik is the Norwegian affiliate of LKAB called LKAB Norge A/S, which takes care of the exports of iron ore from Narvik. The Western Seqi was under the technical management of Nordane Shipping, Svendborg, while flying the Danish flag.
The Norwegian owned tug Western Seqi has returned to Svendborg after two years of trading in Greenlandic waters. The tug is flying Danish flag and has been serving the mine in Seqi (between Nuuk and Manitsok) assisting bulk carriers loading olivin from the mine. The mine has been closed for the season.
