Groun­ded shrimp traw­ler Nor­th­gui­der: sal­va­ging ope­ra­ti­on has star­ted

The shrimp traw­ler Nor­th­gui­der, which ran aground clo­se to Spar­ren­e­set on Nord­aus­t­land, south of Murchi­son­fjord, is still sit­ting on the rocks. The wreck is sup­po­sed to be remo­ved.

This ope­ra­ti­on has now begun: several spe­cial ships are now on loca­ti­on to get the Nor­th­gui­der off the rocks and away. The sea area around the wreck has been clo­sed for other traf­fic wit­hin one mile from the near­by shore to make sure the crews will not be dis­tur­bed during their work.

Sal­va­ging ope­ra­ti­on – shrimp traw­ler Nor­th­gui­der

The crew of the Nor­th­gui­der could be saved after the groun­ding after several dra­ma­tic hours thanks to luck and the skill of the Nor­we­gi­an SAR for­ces who came with two heli­co­p­ters. Fin­gers cros­sed that the sal­va­ging ope­ra­ti­ons will be equal­ly suc­cess­ful!

Spits­ber­gen kit­chen slats avail­ab­le again

The Spits­ber­gen kit­chen slats are avail­ab­le again: a small num­ber of all kinds has found its way from the work­shop in Lon­gye­ar­by­en to the spitsbergen-svalbard.com ship­ping depart­ment near the Bal­tic Sea coast in Ger­ma­ny.

The slats are made from strong oak wood in Wolf­gang Zach’s car­pen­ters’ work­shop in Lon­gye­ar­by­en. Their design is inspi­red by arc­tic wild­life: the­re is the polar bear (of cour­se!), the wal­rus, the Spits­ber­gen rein­de­er, the wha­le (whiche­ver kind of lar­ge bale­en wha­le you like ☺) and the bear­ded seal. The latest addi­ti­on is the polar fox, which is here avail­ab­le for the first time out­side Lon­gye­ar­by­en. And final­ly, on my per­so­nal request (I am a geo­gra­pher, after all) my favou­rite, the slat with the map of Spits­ber­gen.
