Ship Events Data

2011-11-27: Final Fate: 25-11-2011 vertrokken van Workington naar Cowes met 8 Russische opvarenden, geladen met 3.000 ton kalksteen, 27-11-2011 tijdens slecht weer (windkracht 8 noordwest met ruige zee) geknikt en lek geraakt, om circa 02:00 uur de Coastguard van Holyhead, North Wales gebeld voor hulp, gezonken in de Ierse Zee op 3,8 mijl van het schiereiland Lleyn, Wales, 2 opvarenden konden zich vastklampten aan een reddingsboot en werden per helikopter van RAF Valley (Anglesey) (co-piloot Flt. Lt. William Wales (Prince William, Duke of Cambridge), in veiligheid gebracht, 1 overleden bemanningslid geborgen en 5 opvarenden vermist.

2011-11-28: Search Continues for Six Seafarers Missing on the Irish Sea, Two rescued. Holyhead Coastguard is currently coordinating the search for six merchant seafarers who are missing in gale force weather 10 miles west of the Lleyn peninsula, Gwynedd. The 81-metre cargo carrier, SWANLAND broadcast a mayday message at 2.00 am this morning. The ship reported that their hull was cracking, due to bad weather and that they thought that it may be taking water. Holyhead Coastguard broadcast a mayday relay and several vessels responded. Two of these vessels were able to go to the assistance of the Swanland and its eight crew. When the two vessels arrived at the scene, they found two liferafts and some floating debris. They were able to provide shelter from the gale force winds, whilst awaiting the arrival of rescue resources. Meanwhile Holyhead Coastguard had scrambled the two rescue helicopters from RAF Valley and Dublin Coastguard and requested the launch of the Pwllheli and Porth Dinllaen RNLI all weather lifeboats.
The search for five missing men from the SWANLAND that sank in the Irish Sea on Nov 27, 2011, has been called off for the evening. British coastguards have acknowledged that at this stage the operation is now about recovering bodies as opposed to finding survivors. The search for the five missing Russians had resumed at first light at 8 a.m in the morning of Nov 28. Most of the efforts were concentrated on a 210km stretch of Welsh coastline, where 11 teams from the Holyhead coastguard scoured the shoreline with the help of a police helicopter. The Irish Coastguard and Navy assisted in the search on Nov 27 but their involvement was not requested on Nov 28. The survivors had reported the hull had cracked about 45 km northwest of the Welsh Lleyn peninsula after the ship was hit by an “enormous” wave, causing it to roll over and beeaking in half. It sank within 15 minutes. The "Swanland" had arrived at Raynes Jetty in Workington port on Nov 24 and unloaded stone before leaving on Nov 25. Workington was its last port of call. Three Irish Coast Guard helicopters, the Naval Service patrol ship "LE Roisín" and an Air Corps Casa maritime patrol aircraft were tasked by Holyhead Coast Guard in one of the largest joint rescues undertaken by Irish and British rescue agencies in the Irish Sea. The Irish units worked with RAF Valley and Chivenor search and rescue helicopters and RNLI lifeboats from Pwllheli and Porthdinllaen, along with other vessels in the area. The helicopters refuelled at the RAF Valley station. Rescue attempts ended before darkness last night. The two survivors were wearing immersion suits with strobe lighting. Five of the crew were on deck and three were below, including the captain, engineer and first mate. It was believed they had no time to escape and were among the five still missing last night. People Crew of 8 (Russian): Captain Yury Shmelev [missing]Chief Officer Leonid Safonov [recovered, died]Chief Engineer Gennadiy Meshkov [missing] Second Officer Roman Savin [rescued] Second Engineer Mikhail Starchevoy [missing] Able Seaman Vitaliy Kornenko [rescued] Able Seaman Sergey Kharchsenko [missing] Cook Oleg Andriets [missing]. The RNLI reported two liferafts and some floating debris on the sea surface when their lifeboats arrived on the scene, but there was no sign of the ship. The "Swanland" was carrying 3,000 tonnes of limestone to Cowes on the Isle of Wight. An investigation into the sinking is expected to focus on weather factors and the extent of the swell in the Irish Sea, the ship’s maintenance history and the layout of the cargo on board. It was expected that any pollution risk from the ship’s hull would be monitored by the British authorities.

2012-01-00: Wreck of SWANLAND to be surveyed. The Marine Accident Investigation Branch is to use a robot submarine to survey the wreck of the Swanland off the north Wales coast which sank carrying 3,000 tonnes of limestone during a storm in November 2011. A surviving sailor had said the hull broke after the vessel was struck by a giant wave off Lleyn. An exclusion zone has been established 15 miles west of the peninsula whilst the survey work is carried out. The exclusion zone has a one mile radius centred at 52-52.06N 005-05.03W. The investigation is expected to take several months. In December an investigation found the ship had been at the centre of repeated safety concerns. An analysis of safety inspection records for the Swanland revealed a high number of failings. Members of the crew claimed the vessel was vulnerable in rough seas because of a history of unsafe loading. The search for five missing crewmen, among them the chief engineer, 2nd engineer, deckhand and cook, was called off on Nov 29.

2012-11-26: Investigation in ship's loss going on. An investigation is underway a year after the "SWANLAND" sank off North Wales with the loss of six lives. The ship was sailing from Colwyn Bay to the Isle of Wight with a cargo of limestone and was was off Bardsey Island when its was struck by a huge wave, causing severe damage. The crew made a Mayday call at 2.03 a.m. on Nov 27, 2011, and a major rescue operation was launched. But despite the efforts of lifeboats, helicopters and other ships, six men lost their lives. Two of the crew were plucked to safety by an RAF helicopter. They described how the large wave broke the ship’s back. A third crewman was later found dead during a search for survivors. Immediately after the tragedy Maritime Accident Investigation Branch launched an inquiry. Part of the investigation has involved the use of small, remote-controlled submarines to carry out an underwater survey of the wreckage, an operation hampered by bad weather and rough seas. There has also been a detailed analysis of safety inspection records for the vessel carried out by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. It has been reported MCA officials found a high number of failings. In August 2010 the "SWANLAND" had narrowly avoided grounding off Lizard Point, Cornwall, after her engines failed and she had to be towed into Falmouth. The ship’s operator, Grimsby-based Torbulk Limited, said the vessel had been regularly inspected and any faults “promptly rectified”. The "SWANLAND" regularly travelled the route from the CEMEX’s Raynes Quarry near Colwyn Bay to Kingston Wharf on the Isle of Wight.

2012-12-04: The "SWANLAND" suffered a catastrophic structural failure before sinking, an investigation has found. The ship was in the middle of a gale force storm and 4-m-waves off the Gwynedd coast in November 2011. Giant waves snapped the hull of the ship, which was carrying quarry stone loaded at Raynes Jetty near Llanddulas. The Marine Accident Investigation Branch interim report said the ship sank in around 15 minutes. The report said two questions remained: "The causes of Swanland's catastrophic structural failure, and why only two of the vessel's eight crew survived". Two of the eight Russian crew managed to clamber aboard a life raft and were winched to safety by a rescue helicopter team from RAF Valley. RAF winchman Richard Taylor, who was part of a four-man team which included the Duke of Cambridge, won a bravery award for his efforts during the operation. The body of a third crew member was later recovered from the water but the bodies of the five remaining crew have never been found. The interim report says it expects to complete its investigation by the end of the year and publish a final accident report in April next year.
