Report on Blackout and Grounding

Friday, February 13, 2009

The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued the report of its investigation into the electrical blackout and subsequent grounding of a ro-ro cargo ship in Warrenpoint Harbor, Northern Ireland on 29 June 2008.  The circumstances were highly confused and caused largely by a long series of failures to communicate.  The ship’s management system in general and its safety management system in particular seem to have broken down.  Report No. 5/2009 (2/10/09).
