A container ship from the Japanese shipping company ONE has collided with a crane in the port of Busan, South Korea. The terminal crane immediately collapsed and partly ended up on the ship. The incident happened Monday afternoon local time.

The container ship "Milano Bridge", which has a capacity of 13,900, sails under Panamanian flag and was built in 2018. As shown in the video , the ship was not loaded.

One injured

According to the maritime incident website Maritime Bulletin, it first sailed against another ship, the 'Seaspan Ganges'. Immediately afterwards, the 'Milano Bridge' came into heavy contact with three cranes of container terminal Busan New Port. One of the three cranes collapsed. As far as is known, one incident was injured in the incident.

ONE's vessel suffered considerable damage, as part of the crane ended up on the deck. Reportedly, the Seaspan ship was hardly damaged, if at all, and was able to continue its journey.

    The Mi***o Bridge seemed not to have reduced enough before the accident and kept using thrust to steer clear from quay and vessel alongside. Only after the collision with the quayside and the gantry the engines were reversed as seen by the rudder an the thruster wash going forward at that point.rnClearly no engine/steering gear failure because you see both acting in this emergency manoeuvre. Could be a miscalculation because of wind/current towards the quayside.rnAlso interesting to see what the dynamics between master and pilot were.

    The maneouvering track shows that the ship was not reduced to maneuvering speed at the very beginning. Skidding wrongly estimated. Last options wrongly selected. Thanks god the result could be worse.
