The dry cargo ship Nordic Barents, which is owned by Nordic Bulk Carrierers collided with the nuclear-powered icebreaker Vaygach while sailing in the Northeast Passage. No one was injured in the accident.

"Underway there was contact at low speed between the ship's right side and the icebreaker's side fenders," said the two companies that own the ships in a joint statement to World Maritime News.
The accident happened when the 43,700 dwt large bulk ship was escorted by the icebreaker "with a certified ice-counselor on the bridge,".

There was no damage to any of the vessels that could reduce their seaworthiness or be a danger to the environment and their timetables were therefore not affected by the accident.

"None of the parties involved have raised claims against the other party and Nordic Barents continues its scheduled services without problems," informs companies about the collision that occurred on March 14.

Nordic Barents, built in 1995, belong to ice class 1A and was the first non-Russian dry cargo ship that used the Northeast Passage in a commercial context in the summer of 2010.
Nordic Bulk Carrier has a total of 8 dry bulk vessels in ice class 1 A.
The icebreaker Vaygach is owned by the Russian company Rosatomflot.
