Fire breaks out on DOF vessel

A fire broke out aboard the Skandi Stolmen offshore support vessel in Brazil on Wednesday.

According to DOF, a Norwegian company which owns the vessel through Norskan offshore, the fire was “effectively” extinguished.

Sixteen crew members were transported to other vessels and are now safe, the company said, adding that they have all disembarked in Macaé, state of Rio, for medical evaluation.

Skandi Stolmen was operating in Campos field and it was confirmed that the incident did not cause any environmental harm. Authorities have been notified and the cause of the incident is under investigation.

In July, DOF’s anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel Skandi Pacific, was involved in a fatal accident, off the coast of Australia, when a crew member died after having been crushed between a moving mini-container and a cargo skip.
