Medevac in Great Belt
On June 2, 2018, at 11.50 p.m. the "Stena Scandinavica", while enroute from Kiel to Gothenburg, reported a sick person on board in the Great Belt. A helicopter of the Danish Navy was deployed to medevac the patient and transport him to a hospital for further treatment.
Storm and defective stabilisator kept ferry from docking in Kiel
Due to the stormy weather and a malfunctioning stabilisator the arrival of the "Stena Scandinavica" at the Schweden Quay in Kiel was delayed by several hours on March 16, 2018. Instead of docking at 9.15 a.m. the ship reached the terminal at 12.30 p.m. The ship had already arrived in Kiel but turned around and headed to a waiting position in the Mönkeberg bight due to heavy wind gusts from the East with a force of 10 Beaufort and trouble with the hydraulic of the stabilisator which could not be retracted after the crossing of the Baltic Sea from Gothenburg which made it unable to dock in Kiel. Due to the troubled sea it was also impossible to enter the port stern first, and no tugs were available to assist as all were busy in the Kiel Bight and the Kiel Canal. The police deployed the patrol boat "Falshöft" to assist. German report with photo: https://www.shz.de/19348251 ©2018
Woman went over board off Langeland
In the morning of July 27, 2017, the police in Kiel boarded the "Stena Scandinavica" after its arrival from Gothenburg at 9.15 a.m. at the Schweden Quay because a person was reported as missing. The passengers were not allowed to disembark for 45 minutes, and the cargo could not be unloaded as the investigations were going on. At 09:20 a.m. rescue helicopters from Skrydstrup and Roskilde as well as the "Andromeda" "Banunen" and "Brigaden" of the Danish Navy as well as the German lifeboat "Berlin" were searching for the missing women in the Langelands Belt. She had probably jumped into the water from the "Stena Scandinavica". The woman was found lifeless six miles north of Spodsbjerg in the foremidday and was flown to the Odense University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
