ACCIDENT / INCIDENT IMAGES
LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
This incident could have been easily avoided, the valves to the fwd domestic boiler header tank should have been shut prior to carrying out this operation. Fortunately only a small quantity of fuel overflowed into docks before pumping ceased and clean up/containment operations began.
The prompt actions of ships staff and their rapid implimentation of the oil spill response procedure was noted by the local harbour authorities.
No PtW was completed.
