- fires - 2022 (during the construction in Germany)
|July 2022||Fire Accident|
In July 2022, the German police started an investigation of two fires that broke out on the cruise ship (on July 9, 2022) being still under construction at Meyer Werft's yard in Papenburg (Germany).
Both fires were small and occurred on July 9, 2022. The first fire was inside a nearly completed passenger stateroom, while the second one was in a storage room (opposite to the cabin) where workers found a rubbish bin with a burning garbage bag.
A security guard suffering from smoke inhalation was hospitalized. Papenburg's fire brigades along with the Meyer Werft's fire brigade arrived at the scene and quickly extinguished both fires.
The initial property damages were estimated at ~EUR 60,000.
Florian Feimann (spokesman for the shipbuilder) said that the cause of the fire was being investigated in all directions, that Meyer Werft is working closely and fully with the police and that the vessel's delivery date and the construction schedule are not endangered by the accident.
The police commented that arson couldn't be ruled out. The investigation was started by the Emsland/Grafschaft-Bentheim police and later, for tactical reasons, was handed over to the police in Lingen.
MS Arvia was at the final construction stage and scheduled to start passenger shipping operations on December 9, 2022 (Maiden Voyage).
