Fire Aboard Wind Farm OSV Extinguished
The blaze began in the engine room and spread to the exhaust system on the 24 -meter-long vessel owned by A2SEA, which had three crew members on board.
In addition to the multipurpose vessel Mellum, the warships Hamburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern were involved in the fire fight. The tanker Spessart remained on stand-by to help the crew of the Sea Gale. Two of the three fires were extinguished by the crew along with a joint team from the other ships. The third fire was extinguished with foam from a team of specially trained firefighters.
A fire watch stayed aboard the Sea Gale while the damaged vessel was taken under tow to White Sands Ship and Boatyard where an investigation will take place.
