NTSB Releases El Faro Investigation Final Report

February 7, 2018 by Mike Schuler

SNIPPET:


Eric Stolzenberg, Naval Architecture Group Chairman presenting about the Flooding of Cargo Holds during the December 12, 2017 board meeting on the sinking of the S.S. El Faro.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board has released its final report on its investigation into the sinking of the American cargo ship SS El Faro on October 1, 2015 in the Atlantic Ocean.

Today’s release of the final report follows the NTSB’s meeting on December 12, 2017, to determine the probable cause of the sinking. On that date, the NTSB also adopted and released 81 findings and 53 safety recommendations from the investigation.

The US-flagged cargo ship SS El Faro was on a regular route from Jacksonville, Florida, to San Juan, Puerto Rico when it foundered and sank about 40 nautical miles northeast of Acklins and Crooked Island, Bahamas after sailing into the path of Hurricane Joaquin. All 33 people on board perished when the ship sank.

The 40-year-old SS El Faro was owned by TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico and operated by TOTE Services, Inc.

The loss of the vessel is the worst U.S. maritime disaster in terms of loss of life in over 30 years.
