On Sunday evening, the cargo ship Ormsö, which was operating on the Vormsi route, rescued a cargo ship that got stuck in the Heltermaa canal and stopped the ferry traffic.

“We announce that the cargo ship is stuck in the Heltermaa canal and is waiting for a tug,” TS Laevad, operating on the Heltermaa-Rohuküla ferry line, announced at around nine o’clock on Sunday evening. Due to a cargo ship stuck in the canal, the voyage that had to leave Rohuküla at ten in the evening was canceled, because the ship could not sail to the port in Heltermaa – two large ships could not safely pass each other in a 60-meter-wide canal.
