The Merrion Lounge / Info needed on ports rules on dangerous goods
« on: August 11, 2013, 07:51:18 pm »
I'm looking to get some info on ports in Ireland/UK apart from Dublin port on their rules/bye laws regarding dangerous goods. I need to complete something within the next 10 days and an idea on how other ports operate would help a lot.

Links to their rules/bye laws would be great.

Thanks in advance.

The News Board / Finnarrow Passengers and crew evacuated.

From ITV Wales:

"Passengers and crew evacuated from vessel in Holyhead
Stena Line has confirmed there was an incident at Holyhead port in Anglesey at around 6am this morning as the Stena Line charter ship Finnarrow was berthing in Holyhead en route from Dublin Port which involved the ship’s stabilisers.

All 77 passengers and 43 crew onboard the vessel were evacuated and the vessel was safely berthed.

The vessel is currently docked in Holyhead undergoing inspections and will remain out of service for the immediate future.

Stena Line passengers due to travel on Stena Line’s Holyhead-Dublin service will be accommodated on alternative sailings and are currently being contacted by the company to advise them of the situation."

She was using Ulysses berth in Holyhead & Ulysses is now delayed. From what I hear she has holed herself & no idea of the damaged to ship or berth yet.
