Aker BioMarine’s krill harvesting vessel Saga Sea has sailed to the Falkland Islands after incurring an injury on its propulsion system. The injury occurred in connection with at-sea transshipment.
The repair work is ongoing and the company expects that the work will be completed within a few days so that Saga Sea will return to operations during next week.
After the season, the vessel will be docked for further inspection. The company expects that the repair costs will be covered by insurance. There were no personal injuries or emissions in connection with the injury.
