Dutch cargo ship HELGE off Denmark Salvaged!

September 20, 2022 GENERAL

Sep 9 1430 UTC UPDATE: HELGE is still afloat with working AIS, drifting in northern direction, or probably, being under tow. Anyway, the ship doesn’t sink and hopefully, won’t.

General cargo ship HELGE collided with reefer WILD COSMOS at around 0320 UTC Sep 9 in North sea 32 nm NW of Ringkobing, Denmark, while both ships were sailing in the same direction. HELGE was breached and started taking on water, later updates said the ship sank and 7 crew were rescued, but according to track, the ship was still afloat, adrift, as of 0710 UTC, so probably, situation is not as bad as reported by some sources. HELGE is en route from Antwerp to Heroya Norway, WILD COSMOS is en route from Durban ZA to Tallinn Estonia.
