Isfjord – 12th Sep­tem­ber 2017

Today, we are star­ting with SV Anti­gua again! We are gathe­ring on board for the first time in the after­noon, and after the usu­al wel­co­me pro­ce­du­res and man­da­to­ry safe­ty inst­ruc­tions, we lea­ve the pier – under sails. The eas­ter­ly bree­ze that we have had for some time comes in very han­dy now. We sail silent­ly into Isfjord and into a magni­ficent sun­set. After a cou­p­le of hours, the anchor is going down in Trygg­ham­na, well shel­te­red – the name trans­la­tes as »Safe har­bour« – by rug­ged moun­tains.

1600 liters of die­sel lost in Mimerda­len

1600 litres of die­sel were lost on Fri­day during a heli­co­p­ter flight in Mimerda­len near Pyra­mi­den. The fuel was han­ging under the heli­co­p­ter to be trans­por­ted to a sta­ti­on on a moun­tain west of Pyra­mi­den ope­ra­ted by Lon­gye­ar­by­en air­port for aeri­al navi­ga­ti­on.

A rope bro­ke during the flight, so the die­sel fell down and cras­hed on the gra­vel plain of the river bed. It could not be retrie­ved and was lost in the envi­ron­ment: in the river gra­vel, one of the many small rivers or final­ly in the fjord.

The heli­co­p­ter was ope­ra­ted by Luft­trans­port, a com­pa­ny that is also respon­si­ble for the heli­co­p­ter logistics of the Sys­sel­man­nen, inclu­ding Search and Res­cue ope­ra­ti­ons. The inci­dent is cur­r­ent­ly under inves­ti­ga­ti­on.
