Accident with hatches MS Arlow Sky, Bilbao, 21 September 2010

Status : Closed

On 21 September 2010 there was a serious accident1 involving a hatch crane on board the Dutch mv Arklow Sky2. At the time of the accident the ship was moored in the port of Bilbao, Spain. While closing the hold, after having unloaded the cargo, a hatch fell out of the hatch crane and into the hold. As a consequence of the impact of the falling hatch, the hatch crane came off its rails on the starboard side3 and ended up partially in the ship's gangway4. As a result the first mate, who was operating the hatch crane alone, fell from the operating platform on the hatch crane around eight metres down into the hold. He suffered serious injuries as a result of this fall and was admitted to hospital in a critical state. After around four weeks he awoke from a coma and was operated on to rectify the serious back injuries he had suffered.
