RR53 - Ship/platform collision incident database (2001)
Updates the database of collision incidents on the United
Kingdom continental shelf (UKCS) and the collision frequency
analysis provided in the report of the Marine Technology Support
Unit,MaTR0477 "Update of collision incident database",
1997. Data has been collected from a number of collision incident
record sources to confirm or complete previous records and to
expand the database up to October 2001.The database has expanded
from 494 records in MaTR0477 to 557 records. The database of
operating experience has been recompiled and extended to encompass
all mobile and fixed installations operating on the UKCS and takes
into account recent abandonments, and is sorted into incidents
involving "passing Vessels" and "attendant
vessels". Records that collision incidents involving the
former have occurred only 8 times. Nonetheless, the potential
exists for major structural damage, possibly from even a glancing
blow by a passing merchant vessel.
