Stealth Maritime, as the manager of the M/V ALNIC MC, provides the below statement on behalf of the vessel’s owner, Energetic Tank, Inc.
August 7th 2019
Energetic Tank, Inc., registered owner of the M/V ALNIC MC, welcomes the release of the United States National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) final report concerning the August 21, 2017 collision between the ALNIC MC and the USS JOHN S. MCCAIN in the traffic separation scheme of the Singapore Strait, which concluded as follows:
The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the collision between the destroyer John S McCain and the tanker Alnic MC was a lack of effective operational oversight of the destroyer by the US Navy, which resulted in insufficient training and inadequate bridge operating procedures. Contributing to the accident were the John S McCain bridge team’s loss of situation awareness and failure to follow loss of steering emergency procedures, which included the requirement to inform nearby traffic of their perceived loss of steering. Also contributing to the accident was the operation of the steering system in backup manual mode, which allowed for an unintentional, unilateral transfer of steering control.
We are grateful to the NTSB for granting us the opportunity to participate in its investigation, with which we cooperated fully. We appreciate the NTSB’s findings and safety recommendations, which we hope will further the common aim of all those involved in maritime commerce and affairs to protect the wellbeing of all seafarers and of improving maritime safety around the world.
