So in short... this early reports indicate that sinking was part of fault in shaft water protection that lead to flooding engine room. But the reason ship was ramed was all on bridge crew?
miscommunication, thinking that "Sola TS":
- when they entered the fjord/area, "Sola TS" was still docked
- tagged/plotted 3 fishing vessel on there radar
- When "Sola TS" was docked and due to it size, locked like it was part of the terminal
- when "Sola TS" come out, it had all deck light on and the Oil terminal lights was also on, and might have made the ship look as a part of the land mass.
- We do here in the Norwegian VHF-communication, early on, when "Helge Ingstad" is told to go Starboard, complains it will get to close to land (...it was 900 meter to land!), so they was already thinking that "Sola TS" was land.... the area is basically the Navy's backyard!!!
Only the final report can answer that
I did find it odd that she sank like that, and quit fast. Nansen class are build to survive and be operational to a decree, even if a torpedo explode under the keel... or a directly hit. But if the report is true, it's explain why. We have seen British ships get hit by missiles during the "Falklands war" with firee and everything.

But Spanish expert, says that they think it's the propeller shaft have been pushed out of position and thus damaged the bulkheads and causing flooding... but that would only apply to 2-3 bulkheads, not 5-6...
