Title: Collision at Hamburg harbour
Post by: Jens Boldt on December 17, 2010, 05:31:19 pm
Grande Nigeria (IMO. 9246850) collided last night around midnight with a harbour tour boat in thick fog.
No one was injured as the crew was able to jump onto Landungsbrücken pontoon at the last moment.

Grande Nigeria was outbound when she had to avoid an oncoming freighter. Due to a navigational mistake her stern collided wtih the harbour boat which  was berthed at Landungsbrücken. Part of the harbour boat's superstructure was crushed and part of Landungsbrücken was damaged, too, and had to be closed off.

According to a spokesman of the harbour police the two harbour pilots on board of Grande Nigeria are jointly responsible for the navigational mistake. It is said that they gave the wrong advice to the Italian master of Grande Nigeria and didn't correct the wrong course of the vessel in time or not at all.

The ship's command has been pressed with charges of endangering the shipping traffic and Grande Nigeria's master had to pay a security deposit of € 4,700.

Von mir zumindest nicht, habe auch selbst noch keine gesehen. Der Bericht steht auf der NDR-Website, sind aber auch keine Bilder dabei...

Gruß,
Jens

Da fällt mir ein: laut NDR2 soll's um 19.30 Uhr einen Bericht darüber im Hamburg-Journal auf N3 geben...

Interessanter Bericht, Hein, danke für den Link.
Ich will den Unfall ja nicht herunterspielen, aber auf der NDR-Website klang es dramatischer, als es aussieht...
