Rescuers Honored and awarded!

Ship owner Torstein Hagen has made it clear that he appreciates all involved in the rescue of his ship.
1 million Nkr Ca 105 000Euro has been given to:
The local town and sportsclub of Hustavika
Norsk Folke hjelp ( Sortoff redcross)
Norsk Luftambulanse that used the Airbus Helikopter 145 medevac to get the wounded to hospital.
The RNoAF 330 Seaking chaps was also mentioned and so was CHC that came in from the Riggs in the North sea.

It shall also be mentioned that the ship did not have a Emergency Tow System compulsory for a long time on oiltankers ( Exxon Valdes or Braer)
This system operates independent of main engine pwr and makes it possible to attach a heavy towline in any condition.
Again the Rotorheads in Norway made me proud.
Oh, and the basket, is just that: A basket Case!
I vote for full oil and fuel tanks ,Thanks!
Stay Safe
