THE CAPSIZING OF M/S HELLAND-HANSEN. THE INVESTIGATION AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PREVENTING SIMILAR ACCIDENTS

In a capsizing investigation of M/S HELLAND-HANSEN (LOA = 34.7 m), model experiments have been performed with the vessel in a ballast condition positioned broadside to breaking waves. The experiments show that the stability requirements set forth at the Torremolinos International Conference for the Safety of Fishing Vessels 1977 are inadequate for this situation. The GZ-curve should be positive up to heeling angles of at least 80 degrees to to prevent capsizing.
