He left Jacksonville, Florida for Puerto Rico early in the morning. and sank in the Bahamas as a result of Hurricane Joaquin .

The ship’s last position at in the morning, very close to the site of the hurricane.

SS El Faro was built in 1975 by Sun Shipbuilding Corporation and Drydock Chester , Pennsylvania. Created as Puerto Rico and operated by steamship company Navieras de Puerto Rico , it has been shipping goods to and from the East Coast of the United States for over two decades. Vessel was purchased by SACS Maritime of Tacoma, WA in 1991 and renamed Northern Lights for transport between Tacoma and Anchorage, Alaska.

Two years later, she was extended by 27 meters at Alabama Inc.’s shipyard, to continue sailing between the two ports until the early 2000s, while she was chartered by the US Naval Maritime Transportation Command. In 2006, the ship was transferred to subsidiary Sea Star Lines and renamed El Faro for coastal service between Jacksonville, Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

During his last departure for , the hurricane was just a tropical storm on a planned path. Less than two days later, Joaquin became a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. The vessel reported rough seas and extreme weather conditions; he took the water and the house at 15 degrees, but the report notes that the flood was contained. Shortly thereafter, SS El Faro stopped all communications with land. He was reported missing .

The US Coast Guard searched over 630000 km 2 and found two areas of debris, but had to stop searching on the evening of with no survivors. At , U.S. federal investigators confirmed that the wreckage had been found over 4,500 meters underwater the day before. According to sonar, the ship sank vertically.

Causes of a shipwreck

Like many accidents, the causes of sinking are multifactorial.

A US Coast Guard investigation similar to that of the NSTB (United States Air Accident Investigation Bureau) cited as the root cause the responsibility of Captain Michael S. Davidson, who otherwise received a low rating, who, after consultation with his staff, chose to steer to windward side of the Bahamas. Islands and too close to the path of Tropical Storm Joaquin , causing it to pass through a dangerous semi-circle despite its officers’ misgivings, and then incorrectly process weather information, sticking to its already outdated updates from a single source, and neglecting to cross — link this information to information from other weather sources.

However, other aggravating factors accelerated the catastrophe:

  • Very atypical trajectory of Hurricane Joaquin completely different from the usual trajectories of these phenomena for the area under consideration.
  • Fuel economy concerns are poorly placed, weighing the decision not to take a big detour to get away from the «eyes» of the storm.
  • Vessel’s age and maintenance: this forty year old ship (ten years older than usual) was modified several times (becoming a hybrid between a ro-ro cargo ship and a container ship), but was in poor condition (a former sailor served on board, unkindly called it » with an old bucket of rust » in front of the Commission of Inquiry. To stay within legal stability limits, fixed ballast was installed on board which reduced her freeboard and made it easier for water to enter through openings in the hull at the level of the garage deck, known as the «shelter deck». The vessel designated for American national cabotage, El Faro in (Jones Law) was required to sail under the American flag and crewed by its own citizens, which forced the owner to save on maintenance of the vessel and keep it in operation beyond reasonable limits. offset reimbursement costs.
  • Loss of thrust in the midst of a hurricane: a vessel already affected by waterways associated with cargo movement (containers and unlaid vehicles damaging pipes and creating waterways) and having a very important windage effect (wind lag), exacerbated by the effects of a liquid hull, took a list long enough to turn off the turbine lubrication pumps and cause the equipment to shut down at the most inopportune moment. After the equipment failed, the ship became a hurricane’s toy and, in addition, lost the energy to operate the exhaust pumps.
  • Insufficient means of rescue: the old ship El Faro was equipped with classic davit-launched lifeboats rather than decks, while more modern cargo ships use fully enclosed lifeboats such as the stern-launched escape pod due to the very steep descent. . In the extreme conditions (winds over 100 knots or 180 km/h) encountered by the ship, the safety afforded by conventional rowboats or inflatable rafts (which otherwise could not be launched) was completely illusory. A lone corpse dressed in a rescue suit will be discovered by a rescue helicopter and then disappear before it can be rescued, while among the floating wreckage, rescuers will find unused rescue suits, a half-inflated automatic raft and the wreckage of a lifeboat badly damaged containers that floated for a while.

«Black box» and investigation

Although the ships were not equipped with the same recorders as the aircraft, El Faro was equipped with a call recorder for bridge officers.

Discovered and retrieved by an ROV (Remotely Controlled Underwater Robot), it allowed investigators to record on a fifty-page document the deteriorating situation over the course of several hours through conversations between officers, helmsman and personal computer.

MOSCOW, March 6 — RIA Novosti. The captain of the El Faro ship that sank in the fall of 2015 received weather reports six hours late, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) experts told CBS after analyzing route recorders.

December 14, 2016, 02:42

Captain of the El Faro wreck spoke of conflicting weather reports There were many sources of weather information. Part of the NTSB investigation is to determine which ones were used by crew members at certain times.

The El Faro cargo ship, carrying 33 crew members, left Puerto Rico bound for Florida. The ship disappeared in early October 2015 during Hurricane Joaquin. All crew members were killed. In April 2016, recorders were discovered at a depth of about 5 kilometers in the Bahamas, they were only raised in August, after which the NTSB began an investigation into the causes of the disaster.

«We learned from the route recorders that weather reports were repeatedly sent to the ship. The officers of the watch received printed text reports, and then the captain received graphic reports every six hours in his cockpit,» NTSB specialist Brian Young said on the air of the channel.

According to Brian, the reports received by the captain actually provided information six hours late.

«Those (reports — ed.) that the watch officers received were more reliable in terms of relevance, while the data received by the captain was 6 hours old,» said the specialist, who confirmed that all this happened in the face of «a storm that was gathering strength faster than many others.»

The specialist also emphasized that when the hurricane began, the captain of the ship decided to change the route and went to sleep for eight hours in his cabin, as he was sure that they would bypass the danger zone. «We will safely pass behind it (the hurricane — ed.). The faster we move, the better,» the TV channel quotes Captain Davidson, taken from the records of the recorders.
