OSLO, October 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The fire, which broke out onboard the Russian research vessel Academician Lazarev, was put out, several crewmen from a 30-strong crew were evacuated, the chief of the Norwegian rescue team Asbjorn Viste said on Monday.
The Russian research vessel gave the SOS signals on Sunday, 70 nautical miles northwest of Sor-Trondelag on the Atlantic coast.
The Norwegian emergency authority dispatched the helicopters and several vessels, including the ship Ocean Sky from the Draugen oil platform and the firefighting vessel Far Seeker. High waves and strong winds hampered the rescue operation, the local authorities reported.
The Academician Lazarev belongs to the joint stock company Sevmorneftegeophysics with the head office in Murmansk.
