Noreq Aids Greek Cruise Ship

Monday, August 13, 2007
On August 7, the cruise ship Thomson Spirit collided with another cruise ship, Ocean Majesty - on the Geirangerfjord in Norway. A lifeboat and the davit for a tender vessel were damaged which resulted in Ocean Majesty being refused permission to continue its cruise. No passengers or crew were injured.

Noreq AS, a Norwegian manufacturer and equipment supplier, helped the Greek shipping company. A temporary solution was found in record time, and the ship was allowed to continue its voyage to Iceland. The solution was to installa new life-raft davit, ensuring the necessary safety until the shipping company is able to repair or replace the damaged lifeboat and davits.
