Grounded Lysblink Seaways to be scrapped

Grounded Lysblink Seaways to be scrapped
Lysblink Seaways, the 7,500 dwt UK-flagged cargo vessel which grounded off western Scotland in February, is to be scrapped, owner DFDS has confirmed.

On arrival at Inchgreen Drydock in Greenock, DFDS concluded the vessel was too badly damaged for repair. The vessel has been sent for scrapping at DRB Marine Services of Rosneath.

The vessel was en route from Belfast to Skogn in Norway when it ran aground near Ardnamurchan Point, in Western Scotland, requiring tugs to pull it free.
