Royal Greenland's trawler Lomur has sunk - the entire crew is safe.


It is with great regret that we have to announce that our trawler Lomur has been involved in an accident and sunk west of Sisimiut during the night of today 17 March. We must emphasize that all ten crew members have been rescued and are safe and well despite the serious incident.

Our focus is now on providing the necessary support to the crew and their families in the aftermath of this incident. We have immediately taken steps to ensure that those involved receive professional crisis counselling.

We would like to recognise the fast and effective rescue operations carried out by Arctic Command, Greenland Police, and all others who contributed to ensuring the safety of the crew. Their efforts have been crucial.

The crew's handling of the situation shows a high level of professionalism and training that we at Royal Greenland appreciate. Their ability to act decisively in an emergency situation emphasises the importance of our continuous focus on safety and preparedness.

We are currently working with relevant authorities to analyse the sequence of events and the causes of the accident.
