08 December 2022Ship Collision / Allision
On December 8, 2022, while maneuvering for docking in Hamburger Hafen/Port Hamburg (Germany), the ship collided with Steinwerder Terminal's quay. The collision happened at ~8 am local time (~7 am UTC) and resulted in minor hull damage (at the stern/aft) above the waterline.
Reportedly, the cause was a technical defect.
No injuries or pollution were reported. AIDAbella was temporarily suspended by the city's water police, and the next voyage (43-day "Grose Winterpause Karibik 1" itinerary/Transatlantic crossing roundtrip from Hamburg to the Caribbean) was delayed by 2 days - it departed on Dec 10th instead of the scheduled Dec 8th departure.
The accident occurred at the end of the 26-day "Grose Winterpause Kanaren 1" voyage (itinerary Nov 12 - Dec 8, roundtrip from Hamburg) with call ports in the UK (Weymouth/Isle of Portland), Portugal (Leixoes/Oporto, Funchal Madeira), Spain's Canary Islands (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Santa Cruz de la Palma, San Sebastian de la Gomera, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Puerto del Rosario/Fuerteventura, Arrecife/Lanzarote), as well as Lisbon, La Coruna, Honfleur, and Rotterdam.
Note: Actually, this type of marine accident is called “allision” (striking a fixed object) as opposed to “collision” (striking another vessel).
