NTSB: Pilot Blamed for Houston Ship Channel Collision

Posted on

first_imgThe pilot’s difficulty in controlling the bulk carrier Conti Peridot’s heading was identified as the probable cause of the collision between the bulker and the tanker Carla Maersk in the Houston Ship Channel in March 2015, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).Besides the inability of the pilot on the Conti Peridot to respond appropriately to hydrodynamic forces after meeting another vessel during restricted visibility, other factors are believed to have led to the collision, among which is the lack of communication with other vessels about the handling difficulty.Contributing to the circumstances was the inadequate bridge resource management between the master and the pilot on the Conti Peridot, as they did not work together to solve the problem.Furthermore, lack of predetermined ship movement strategies during restricted visibility in the Houston Ship Channel also played a role in the collision.“On the day of the accident, local pilot associations determined that the increasing fog was significant enough to suspend pilot boardings of inbound ships. However, piloted vessels already under way continued the transit in the fog,” NTSB said, adding that the Vessel Traffic Service Houston/Galveston did not effectively monitor vessel traffic to identify the developing risk of collision during restricted visibility.Image Courtesy: USCGAs a result of this accident, the NTSB issued safety recommendations to Bremer Bereederungsgesellschaft mbH & Co., the Conti Peridot’s operating company, the Houston Pilots Association, and the Lone Star Harbor Safety Committee.The two vessels collided in restricted visibility on March 9, 2015, near Morgan’s Point, Texas, when the bulker crossed the channel into the path of the Carla Maersk.There were no injuries in the collision, but an estimated 88,200 gallons of methyl tert-butyl ether spilled from the Carla Maersk, and the two vessels sustained about USD 8.2 million in total damage.last_img read more
