Ship Collision / Allision
(Sirena Seaways / pier collision) On June 22, 2013, the ship (with a total of 489 passengers onboard) collided with dockside at Harwich, Essex England. The accident caused hull damage to the ferry, the loading ramp and the dockside.
As a result, the vessel started taking on water and its crew blocked the opening from inside. The watertight compartments were used to prevent the ship from capisizing. An RAF search and rescue helicopter from Wattisham Airfield, Harwich RNLI lifeboat and Walton Coastguard rescue team responded to the accident, along with several other ships nearby.
At 2:45 p.m. the ferry was brought alongside and all passengers were disembarked. The cause of the incident remains unknown.
Note: Actually, this type of marine accidents is called “allision” (striking a fixed object) as opposed to “collision” (striking another vessel).
