The general cargo ship PETRA L struck a wind turbine on April 24, 2023.  At the time, the boat was at Godewind wind farm, North Sea.   It is unclear if anyone was injured as a result of the impact.  Both the wind turbine and the vessel are believed to have sustained damage.  Additional details have not yet been released.

There have been a number of recent incidents involving vessels.  On April 10, 2023, the product tanker SUCCESS 9 was boarded by pirates.  A fire broke out on the tanker vessel TIGER SEA on April 17, 2023.  The container ship MONA LISA struck multiple gantry cranes while in port on April 20, 2023.  There was a fire on board the fishing vessel KALTAN on April 21, 2023.  A recreational boat capsized on Lake Havasu on April 21, 2023.

It can be dangerous to work in any industry when safety considerations are not taken seriously.  Safe offshore vessel owners and operators must ensure that their ships do not put the lives of hard working men and women at risk.  Safe companies must be proactive and take preventative measures, including regular maintenance and repairs, to also ensure that the environment is not impacted.
