Fire on board the passenger ship STENA SCANDICA

Investigated by Denmark.

On August 29, 2022, a fire broke out on the car deck of the passenger ship STENA SCANDICA, while it was on route from Nynäshamn, Sweden, to Ventspils, Latvia. The ship's crew was able to extinguish the fire and no one was injured. The ship's electrical system and maneuverability were affected and the ship drifted for several hours before the engines could be restarted. The ship could then return to Nynäshamn under its own engine.
