    The Norwegian frigate KNM Helge Ingstad, badly damaged after colliding with an oil tanker. In the early hours of today, the frigate KNM Helge Ingstad F-313 of the Royal Navy of Norway has been seriously damaged after colliding with a Maltese petroleum 250 meters in length, the Sola TS. A waterway was opened to the Norwegian warship and it was pushed towards the coast by tugboats, with the aim of making it run aground to avoid its sinking. The frigate belongs to the Fridtjof Nansen class, was built in Ferrol (Spain) by Navantia and was launched on November 23, 2007, receiving the discharge in the Norwegian Navy on September 29, 2009. The accident occurred north of Sture terminal, in the municipality of Øygarden, in the province of Hordaland, in the south of Norway, when the Norwegian frigate returned from its participation in the Trident Juncture exercise 2018 of NATO, which precisely has been developed in recent days in the Nordic country.

    Gunston Hall participated well in Trident Juncture.

    Jura and others..as for the fire aboard HMCS Halifax you'd be surprised how often fires occur aboard Naval ships...Total power failure? humm... Aboard USS Hancock we lost all power TWICE in 1975 and the issues were repaired AT SEA and we just kept going. Nuff said....honestly the second power failure occurred on the way to Hong Kong BCC. After about six days in port in Hong Kong we transited slowly to Subic Bay for more through repairs.
