A 24-meter fuelling vessel, Erin Wood, was towed to Peterhead Saturday after a collision with a Cyprus registered
cargo vessel, Daroja, the U.K. Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) reported.
At 5:10 p.m. Aberdeen Coastguard received a Mayday call from the Erin Wood with two crew on board, which had taken on water following a collision approximately two miles off Peterhead with a cargo vessel. No injuries to crew were reported.
Aberdeen Coastguard requested the launch of Peterhead All Weather Lifeboat and other vessels offered assistance. The Erin Wood was taken under tow by a fishing vessel into Peterhead and the cargo vessel has also gone to Peterhead.
The MCA will be attending both vessels and an investigation is underway.
The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has also been informed, MCA said.
