Here is an Engine Room explosion where we actually have a real cause.
Would that we had this for all the EX casualties.
ETC puts spill volume at 1500B, but USCG silent on this.
Not sure what this based on.
ETC claims this spill took place in 1993.
Hess had all kinds of ISM-like paperwork in place.
There were some 7 audits between when the temp repair was made
and the fire, none of which corrected the situation.
The paperwork was just that, paperwork.
Generators were obviously undersized.
This is not surprising
Yards uses and Class allows optimistic output and load requirements.
Hellespont found that generators must be sized
at least 20% larger than class requirements
to actually do the job, without bringing another generator on line.
NTSB report is PB95-916403, but CTX has not yet seen.
