The team, which began investigating the MOL Comfort casualty in Mid-June, had
expected to complete its analysis and investigation of the casualty in early
September. However, the time consuming nature of some of the analysis work has
forced the team to revise its forecast for completion. The team continues to carry out
its exhaustive investigation into the cause of the casualty, and now expects to
release its findings to the public by the end of October 2013.
Further updates will be provided as necessary via the ClassNK website
