Please find attached accident report from M/V Morraborg.

 

On the 3:rd of July, 2011, SAIA was informed that a fatal accident had occurred  onboard the Dutch general cargo vessel Morraborg while berthing at the port of  Holmsund, Sweden.

 

Please read the report and reflect on the enormous force a broken mooring line creates. It is not just important to beware of the bight durgin mooring operations, it is also important to stay well clear of the direction in which a broken line will go.
