Australia – Report on PV Grounding

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) issued the report of its investigation into the grounding of a passenger ship at Devonport, Tasmania on 23 February 2008.

There were no injuries, no damage to the ship, and no pollution. Tidal conditions were a factor and the ship was difficult to maneuver at slow speed. The major cause of the casualty, though, was a breakdown in communications between the pilot and the bridge personnel.
