THORCO CLOUD COLLISION - what went wrong? 

And what can be done to prevent accidents like these?

Thorco Cloud sank in December 2015 after a collision with Stolt Commitment in the Singapore area and 6 staff members tragically lost their lives. 

Torben Jørgensen from Thorco Shipping will explain to us what went wrong in December 2015, what Thorco Shipping has learned, and how will they avoid accidents like this in the future.

Pino Spadafora from the Italian classification society RINA will present suggestions to avoid accidents as the one on Thorco Cloud. He will do so by presenting the use of Asset Integrity Management (AIM) and identification of single point of failure. Furthermore, he will include the aspects of “The Human Element” and competence management.
