As yet MAC has not tracked down an investigation report on this incident. It understood to have involved the German-flagged chemical/products tanker Jana and the Antigua and Barbuda flagged containership Herm Kiepe in 2011 on the Kiel Canal. Herme Kiepe has since changed its name to Leone P as of August 2013.

What do you think happened? Let us know in the comments section below.

  1. Difficult to say what happend based on the small fragment. A safe meeting in a channel is all about the right timing of going to the bank, I think it is highly likely that the Jana came to the bank too early, so that she was overcome by bank effect too early. You want to be overcome by bank effect at a time that you’re brought back to the centre after the ship has been met, not before 🙂
