Emma Maersk flooding incident report released by Danish authorities.

You can find it here http://www.dmaib.com/News/Sider/Floodin ... y2013.aspx

From the picture, its looks like I would have had to change my underpants after seeing that in the engine room.

I just read this thriller - Big congratulations to Captain Garðastovu and his crew.

This will go down in the history books - as a heroic deed with the best conceivable outcome.

The Faroese who was involved in this Triller - both during the heroic maneuver in Suez channel and afterwards in renovation in Palermo ( Superintendent Mr. Peter Højgaard Brodersen and his crew, was in-charge of the operation to get Emma up running again ) - has created a lot of respect for Faroese labor and skill.
We at Faroe Maritime Technic are also grateful for the opportunity to be part of the renovation of Emma in Palermo. We removed approx. 42 tons of oil from the engine before it was empty into a tanker.
Here are some pictures from his stay in Palermo.
Once again, Congratulations Marius and all the others.

Very Interesting reading the report, and the insight of the writers....

"Overall, it is evident from this accident that it is inherently difficult to design safety measures
to meet the complexity of accidental events and that the creation of safety and recovery from
accidental events rests with the ship’ crew.”
