On the night between January 26th and 27th, 15 people were evacuated from a so-called installation vessel in the North Sea off of the Danish west coast, informs Dong Energy in a press release. The event is confirmed by the official Danish rescue team, Forsvarets Operationscenter.

None of the evacuated crew members seem to have been injured. The installation vessel Sea Worker ran aground after the evacuation a couple of kilometers off the coast. Forsvarets Operationscenter, which handles search and rescue missions at sea in Denmark, received the distress call about 30 minutes after midnight.
