Emma

Viken,Norway

Originally built as a paddle steamer in England in 1840, she was sold to Denmark five years later and used as a passenger ferry. She was purchased in 1925 and put in service as a barge for the Norwegian company Christiania Portland Cementfabrik and renamed Emma. She sank under a storm in 1943 in Slemmestad harbor loaded with lime stone. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck a depth of 20 meter at the small dock outside the factory facilities of Norcem. The Norwegian divers magazine Bladet Dykking published an article of this particular wreck in 2011. Also see the story of Christiania Portland Cementfabrik at Slemmestad Cement Museum.
