The offshore supply vessel North Sea Giant collided with a breakwater last week at Peterhead port, Scotland, a local newspaper Buchan Observer reports.

According to Buchan Observer, the vessel, named Offshore Support Journal’s “Ship of the Year 2012″, sustained damage to its hull when high winds caused it to crash into the North Breakwater of granite construction on Wednesday.

No injuries and no pollution have been reported. The 161 meters long, 30 meters wide vessel remained moored outside the breakwater waiting for the weather conditions to improve, the newspaper said.

North Sea Shipping, the owner of the vessel, did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment. The North Sea Giant is under contract with Technip Norge, a subsidiary of the France-based oilfield services provider, Technip.
