MV Arrow aground at Aberdeen Harbour

Vessel on sub-charter to Serco-Northlink

The MV Arrow, which is used by the Steam Packet to cover freight traffic, ran aground in Aberdeen Harbour this morning.

The vessel is on a sub-charter to Serco-Northlink for Aberdeen-Northern Isles services. 

According to the BBC, the Arrow 'got into difficulties during manoeuvres on its arrival from Lerwick' early this morning, and ran aground at the entrance to the harbour.  

She was freed by harbour tugs, with no injuries reported, whilst a full investigation with the relevant parties will be conducted.

The vessel is on a long-term charter to the Steam Packet, but has been sub-charted to Serco-Northlink for two weeks.

It's being managed and crewed by Seatruck Ferries during this period.
