Vessel’s navigation mast hit the gantry crane.

A container feeder arrived at a container terminal at Maasvlakte-Rotterdam. While proceeding astern in order to moor the vessel over alongside the quay, the navigation mast on poop deck collided with the lowered jib of the shore gantry crane in way. Both the navigation mast as well as the crane jib were damaged.
We were appointed on behalf of the container terminal to serve their interests in this liability matter and investigated the cause of damage by interviewing the persons involved. Furthermore, extent of damages was ascertained and repairs were followed up.
Similar cases are handled quite frequent by Marintec Expertise.
