Good day,

Does anyone know if an investigation report is on going for that incident ?

Have not seen anything in that respect on the French Bea Mer website, perhaps the Spanish Maritime Authorities are looking at it ?

Hi Juha,

You should try the Rotterdam and or Amsterdam ship museum in the Netherlands, they have significant amount of ships drawings in their archive and should be able to provide copies at cost providing the original ones are located there.

Cargo on board Modern Express was saw timber, not logs ...

Timsen, thanks for sharing. It looks like a repeat of the Cougar Ace incident.

Good day,

Can we have some update about the operations going on in Bilbao onboard Modern Express ?

I have been reading that initial Survey indicated that the cargo of sawn timber did not shift, if this is correct that would mean that the root cause for the sudden list may be related to ballast tanks.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Brian,

The MRB plan may be lacking details but it is definitively based upon actual drawings.

Suggest you get that one and improve détails based on photos.

Hi Holedrille,

On hatch cover less vessels containers are retained by the cell guides, you only find lashing bars on the very top tiers in some cases only.

Cell guides are welded to the structure and are strong enough to keep containers in position despite heavy rolling and pitching.

Trust this clarify.

Good day all,

The main reason behind hatch cover less container vessels was to avoid having containers lost overboard as a consequence of excessive lashing forces.

The project was partly "killed" because the tonnage rules made this ships too expensive to operate.

The lashing bridges that are now common on all modern container ships are an excellent alternative, especially because of stack weight issues on hatch cover less units.
