*) Kvikk was decommissioned in 1994 and broken up in 1996. Since the rumour spread out over Norway that an abnormal number of children of crewmembers was born with body misdeformities a sistership was built at the shipyard for intensive testing in order to enforce or to disbend these suspichion. The trails could not support the suspichion.
