Ferry suffered engine trouble
The "Patria Seaways" when being about to leave the Klaipeda port bound to Karlshamn in the evening of July 28, 2019, only moved to the quay of the 8th Klaipeda Stevedoring Company (Klasco) after the failure of one of its engines. While the ferry can sail with one engine, it was, however, decided to moor it and wait for a technical team to repair the faulty engine during the voyage. Accompanied by the tugs "Klasco 1" and "Klasco 3", the ferry left the dock at about 11.30 p.m., 3,5 hours behind schedule. The ship arrived at Karlshamn around 4 p.m.
Man crushed by elevator
On Nov 25, 2013, one person died in an elevator accident aboard the "Patria Seaways", which was sailing between Kapellskär and Paldiski. The crew member was clamped on the roof of an elevator used by both staff and passenger while the ferry was entering Kapellskärs port at 11.25 a.m. Because the ferry was about to dock it took some time before he got help. The man had, by yet unclear reasons, made his way up through a hatch in the roof of the elevator. When the elevator started again the man was crushed. An inquiry was launched by the Norrtäljegatan Police.
