#MCIB - Poor mooring configuration and adherence to safety procedures have been identified as main factors in the interim report on an incident involving a 'handy size' bulker at Greenore Port last year.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the MV Cielo di Monaco was detained at the Co Louth port by Irish authorities on 30 September 2015 under the Paris MoU as a safety measure, with suspected damage to its 180m-long hull.

Further investigation of the vessel found an ingress of water in the forepeak blast tank that caused it to go aground forward, with subsequent diver inspection revealing damage to the shell plating and frames, according to the interim report from the Marine Casualty Investigation Board (MCIB).

Temporary repairs were carried out before the vessel sailed on the following month, with no reports of pollution or injury to any persons.

The MCIB notes that the findings and conclusions in the final report may not reflect the contents of the interim report if additional information or evidence is revealed.
