In early October, Norden's product tanker Nord Supreme was anchored off the coast of Indonesia when a passing ship warned the vessel that five people were trying to board the ship by climbing up the anchor chain. The captain immediately sounded the alarm to warn crew on board.
Three robbers made it on board and threatened the crew with long knives, according to the October report on piracy and robbery in the waters of Southeast Asia published by organization ReCaap. Norden confirmed to ShippingWatch that three people forced their way on board the ship, but quickly disappeared again when they were discovered. No crew members were hurt, while the the robbers left empty-handed.
