|Incident||: Vessel Adrift|
|Vessel type||: Cargo ship|
|Date||: 10th January 2016|
|Location||: 160 nautical miles south-west of the Faroe Islands|
The cargo ship suffered an engine failure and was left adrift 160 nautical miles south-west of the Faroe Islands on Sunday. The crew tried to restart the vessel that did not succeed.
Icelandic Coast Guard patrol ship Þór, belonging to Icelandic logistics company Samskip, took just over 24 hours to make the journey to the stricken vessel. A tow-cable has been successfully attached, and the ship is getting towed back to the Reykjavik, which is expected to arrive at the end of this week.
