[Watch] Dutch Freighter Collided with Pier at Ceuta

1036

On Aug 14, 2018, around 11.30 a.m. the “Manisa Camilla” collided with the heliport pier while docking at the Alfau wharf in Ceuta with the assistance of two tugs. Concrete of the pier broke out, and the ship suffered a breach in the portside bow above waterline.

The vessel had arrived at Ceuta from Sevilla. The accident was caused by an engine failure of one of the tugs so the “Manisa Camilla” got out of control. Strong wind was thought to have contributed to the accident.
