The captain of the Dutch motor vessel ‘Ruyter’ that ran aground at Rathlin Island has been fined £1,000 at Armagh Magistrate’s Court, after pleading guilty to failing to keep a proper look out.
The bulk carrier Muros ran aground on Haisborough Sand last December. UK MAIB report identified that Muros’s route was planned and monitored by the 2/O using the vessel’s ECDIS. However, system and procedural safeguards intended to prevent grounding were either overlooked, disabled or ignored.
In its Safety Digest, UK MAIB describes an incident of hull damage of a ro-ro ferry, highlighting the importance of having a passage planning, even when crews are familiar with a route, as well as of using correctly ECDIS as an aid to navigation.
