The MAIB investigation into the structural failure of MSC Napoli on 18 January 2007 in the English Channel is nearing completion.

Says MAIB: “The investigation has been complex and has required in-depth research in several areas including the vessel’s structure and container vessel operation. It is currently our aim to publish the final report in April 2008.”

MAC understands that the investigation included a computer-based simulation costing some 8m euro.
