Canadian Transportation Safety Board (TSB): Report of investigation of the 14 March 2014 grounding of bulk carrier “John I” off coast of Newfoundland and Labrador

Canada TSBThe Canadian Transportation Safety Board (TSB) issued the report of its investigation of the 14 March 2014 grounding of the bulk carrier John I off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The vessel was operating in ice-covered waters. The sea chest clogged with ice, causing the engine to overheat and resulting in a loss of power, which led to the grounding.

The root cause of the incident was the crew’s lack of experience in operating in ice-covered waters.
