Not a clue, can't find any info on it apart from the photos from the Fire Brigade. 

 

Neither can I. There is nothing in the local press nor on the SDIS 59 homepage. I can't even find any reference to a past fire from which the photos might date. Was it a real fire or an exercise? She does however appear to be sitting at a strange angle in a dock at Dunkerque where she has been since coming beck from Larne in mid-July. Ed.

According to the P&O website, 'European Seaway' will not return to Larne due to the fire she suffered on Sunday evening/Monday morning. 'European Highlander' will be the only vessel on the route during the annual refit of the 'European Causeway', unless P & O charter another ship.

P&O Ferries EUROPEAN SEAWAY left Dunkerque last night under the tow of the tug FAIRPLAY 33 according to a post on the DFE forum.  It appears Seaway’s AIS was switched off a couple of days ago.  Destination is Gdansk.  Looks like Seaway is in a pretty bad way after her little incident last month and can’t get to Poland under her own power!!!  Apparently she was assisted at Dunkerque by no less than 4 port tugs!

Yeah, that's right @jujudu62100, she left Tuesday morning around 07:00 I believe.

Can’t the yard in Dunkerque repair her ?, long tow to Poland.

They may well already have a full book of work... it could be cheaper to have her towed to Poland... all sorts of reasons.
