Blikur -here at the eastern pier in Tórshavn - is the traditional name of the cargo-ship, serving the route between Faeroes and the mainland Europe. But it is no longer registrerd in Tórshavn, but in Limasoll. 17.02.2010
There have been a long series of 'Blikur' cargo ships sailing between Denmark and Faeroes for the 'Skipafelagid'. I think the first arrived in 1956 or so. Today is a containership.
Think this one is nr 3. Built in Søviknes 1963. Perhaps I'm wrong?
In the dark tonight, 19. dec. 2008 at 17 hr, M/S Blikur ran ashore in the harbour of Torshavn. Came with speed in between the piers but was unable to stop, she ended on Tinganes. Came off again 2 hours later with the help of rescueship BRIMIL and the local tug PRESSARIN. No great damage visible.
