Karen Danielsen

Agustin nos manda el enlace a la web del armador del M/V Karen Danielsen, que el pasado viernes paso por debajo del puente Great Belt, aunque por el lado equivocado. El puente hecho por los expertos huelgistas de la Bahía de Cádiz aguantó como un campeón, el barco perdio gruas, palos, y puente, quedando el Capitán herido y el primero recuperado muerto del mar.

DANISH authorities are probing why a warning system installed on the Great Belt Bridge to monitor heavy shipping traffic failed to raise alarm before the multipurpose containership Karen Danielsen crashed into the 18km suspension link on Thursday evening.

The Ministry of Defence’s Sovaernet confirmed that the VTS surveillance system had failed as the 3,630dwt vessel headed off course into the lower western section of the bridge between the islands of Funen and Zealand.

Danish shipowner Rederiet Otto Danielsen said that the missing the chief officer had been recovered this morning, but was unable to confirm reports that he was found dead.

Another member of the 10 strong Croatian crew was due to undergo surgery this afternoon, with three more suffering from minor injuries.

The Bahamas flagged and 1985-built cargo vessel sustained major damage to its wheelhouse, foremast, funnel and cranes that were ripped off as it passed beneath the 18 metre western part of the bridge.

The Danish Maritime Administration and local police are also probing why the vessel had headed into the Great Belt Bridge, when it should have taken a different route south-east into the Baltic on its way to pick up cargo in Finland.

A spokesman for Sovaernet said that human error at the Korsor naval base is suspected for the system error, with an initial Danish Maritime Administration report expected over the next fortnight.

The majority of the 2,500 oil tanker shipments that pass through Danish waters each year sail under the eastern part of the Great Belt Bridge.
