On Oct 18, 2018, the MAIB published a report on the allision of the "CMA CGM Centraurus" with the quay and two shore cranes during its arrival under pilotage at Jebel Ali in May 2017, which resulted in the collapse of a shore crane and 10 injuries, including one serious injury, to shore personnel. The incident occurred because the ship was unable to attain a sufficiently high rate of turn into a basin in preparation for berthing. The pilot was unaware of the ship?s speed, and the ship's bridge team were uncertain of the maximum speed required to complete the turn safely. There was no agreed plan for the intended manoeuvre, and therefore no shared mental model between the bridge team and the pilot. Consequently, the pilot was operating in isolation without the support of the bridge team, allowing the pilot?s decision-making to become a single system point of failure. The pilot's performance was focused on efficiency, which influenced his decision to turn the ship into the basin without ensuring that the manoeuvre was conducted at a sufficiently slow speed to enable its safe completion.
Two workers were killed during the scrapping of the "Ocean Gala". They died already on Aug 31 when they fell onto the ground at the the Honey Ship Breaking in Alang.
