RSS Halfdan Grieg towing in full storm07.03.2016
The 70 meter freighter Loyalty Express experienced engine failure in full storm outside the coast of Bremangerlandet February 17th. RSS Halfdan Grieg towed the ship safely to harbour in Måløy - in a wind speed measured at 54m/s.
RSS Halfdan Grieg is one of 27 SAR vessel with Servogear Ecoflow Propulsion delivered to Redningsselskapet - Norwegian SAR Services. We have had a close cooperation for about three decades, working together for safety at sea.
The footage below is taken from the helicopter of the 330 squadron in Florø, that was stand by in case that the freighter needed to be evacuated. They filmed the dramatic minutes at sea.
