Bpd Shut In After Tanker Collides With Norwegian Warship

Oil tanker & Norwegian Navy frigate ‘collide’ off country’s coast 7 reported injured

The warship is now in danger of sinking, while the tanker, named the Sola TS, is slightly damaged and did not spill oil.

Eight people received minor injuries in the accident, which took place shortly after 4:00 am (0300 GMT) in a busy waterway in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen, Norway's army said.

It can take a significant amount of time for larger ships to sink, with some taking up to 15 hours to be fully submerged under water. "There is no control over the leak and the stern is heavily in the sea".

The main phase of the Trident Juncture 2018 training - in which more than 40,000 troops from 30 member countries and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners participated - took place from October 25 to November 7 in Norway and its surroundings.

A Norwegian warship was repeatedly warned of its collision course with a Maltese oil tanker before then hitting it in a fjord, the BBC has been told.

It is planned that the tanker will return to the dock for an inspection.

Sen. "Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward Counties". In the governor's race, Democrat Andrew Gillum's campaign said Thursday it's readying for a possible recount.

Sola TS has a gross weight of 62,000 tons; Helge Instad has a gross weight of 5,130 tons.

He would not confirm further details as reported by a Norwegian defence and security website, which broke the news that the two vessels could see each other and followed communication protocols on an open channel.

The incident is undergoing investigation, both by the police and by the Accident Investigation Board Norway, officials told the BBC.

The Trident Juncture 18 live drills concluded on November 7 in Norway.

Germany is the second largest contributor to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise, coming in behind the United States.

The scripted maneuvers during "Trident Juncture" are based on a hypothetical scenario where troops have to restore Norway's sovereignty following an attack by a "fictitious aggressor". NATO's latest exercise has angered Moscow, which slammed it as an "anti-Russian" and "provocative". Participating troops will be divided into northern and southern forces that will maneuver against one another.
