After the Viking Sky crash on Hustadvika, the government sets a selection to look at the emergency preparedness situation related to the increase in cruise traffic.
– “During the incident with Viking Sky, we were reminded of the enormous scope a serious incident with a cruise ship can have,” says Social Security Minister Ingvil Smines Tybring-Gjedde (Frp).
The committee will map and describe the extent of today’s cruise traffic and look at the preparedness challenges such traffic brings. Furthermore, the committee will assess Norway’s ability to handle a serious incident with a cruise ship.
The composition of the committee and its final mandate has not been finalized.
