ICE ROSE and KAZANETS - Collision on 23 September 2020

Report published Merchant ship Collision Investigation report

On the morning of 23 September 2020, the Marshall Islands registered refrigerated general cargo ship ICE ROSE collided with anti-submarine ship 311 KAZANETS of the Russian Navy in the Sound, Denmark. The collision happened as ICE ROSE and 311 KAZANETS were passing on crossing courses while navigating in a dense fog. Due to the restricted visibility, both ships’ navigation relied on instrumentation only. Neither of the ships identified the other ship until a few minutes before the collision, and neither ship managed to avoid the collision once the risk of collision was recognised.
