Malta – Marine Safety interim Investigation into the collision of the general cargo ships Adam Asnyk and DK Iman off the coast of China

(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) Transport Malta issued an interim report on the 8 September 2018 collision of the general cargo ships Adam Asnyk and DK Iman off the coast of China. The report is purely factual, reaching no conclusions on causation.

On 08 September 2018, Adam Asnyk was proceeding to enter the Laotieshan Channel Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS) from the West, while she was en route to Taicang. There was significant traffic in the area. The second officer was on watch, along with the third officer acting as a lookout.

Following evasive actions to avoid two fishing vessels, the second officer noticed another vessel, DK Iman, close by on the port side. He altered course to starboard by manual steering, while DK Iman altered her course to port; however, the two vessels collided and sustained damages.
