Maritime inquiry into the loss of Bourbon DolphinNews // April 20, 2007
A maritime inquiry into the loss of the Norwegian supply vessel Bourbon Dolphin, which capsized and sank off Shetland with the loss of eight lives, is due to open at a Norwegian court today (Friday April 20th).
"The offshore industry hopes that statements by survivors will reveal important information. The whole industry is anxiously awaiting what the enquiry will bring. I believe the enquiry will give many of the answers we are all looking for at this time," said Njaal Saevik, CEO of Havila Shipping.
"We expect to gain new knowledge which we may use to introduce measures both on present vessels and on new ones, in order that we may maintain the high safety record our industry is known for," Saevik said.
