- We know little about the cause out of the fire appears to have started in the starboard main engine, said average Inspector Elisabeth Juel Ramos.
Meanwhile, speculation is high about the cause of the accident.One of the rumors is that it should have been working in the engine room which was of such a nature that it could cause a fire.
Does not exclude
- We have also heard the rumors, and we exclude anything until we have done thorough research.Until now it has not turned up such information in the interviews we've done, says the average inspector.
The preliminary investigation is completed, and there is nothing that prevents the moving ship.
More thorough investigation will be done when the ship is docked in the day today.It will happen Fiskerstrand yards.There may be standing in two, three weeks so the company can produce tender documents for the repair work.There will also be convenient that the ship is in dock at the shipyard to bid on repair work.
It's a bit depending on whether the shipyard can spare headstock.If not, we will add to the dock while the tender process is in progress, says operations director Dag-Arne Wensel of Hurtigruten to SunnmĂ¸rsposten.
Although he has no idea about the cause of the fire.The company has also had limited access to the engine room as long as the public inquiry takes place.
Both police and Accident has gone away from that there has been an explosion in the engine room.Rift on the starboard side, which created the drama was due to a broken stabilizer.
