Large tugboat aground outside Hörnefors: “Lying with a strong side”

It was last night that the tug ran aground. It has since been at the site awaiting help. During Tuesday, an operation is underway at the site where the Coast Guard, the Swedish Transport Agency and the shipping company are working together.

– We are at the scene and investigating, we have no clear information about when or how she will be rescued. She is on hard ground, with a strong hitting side, says Linus Nihlén and continues:

– We are there to assist the shipping company and ensure that there are no emissions.

According to the Coast Guard, salvage will probably take place on Wednesday.
