Summary

The ATSB is investigating the collision between the container ship Glasgow Express and the fishing vessel Mako in the Bass Strait, Victoria on 12 August 2017.

At about 2320 on 12 August 2017, the container ship Glasgow Express and the fishing vessel Mako collided in a position about 15 miles south of Phillip Island in the Bass Strait. The fishing vessel suffered substantial damage above the waterline. No injuries to the two persons on board Mako were reported. Glasgow Express remained in the area to assist Mako until it was able to return to San Remo, Phillip Island, in the early hours of 13 August. Glasgow Express then resumed its passage and berthed in Melbourne on 13 August.

The ATSB investigation will involve collecting relevant evidence, including interviewing directly involved parties. The evidence will be analysed and a draft investigation report compiled. The draft report will be forwarded to relevant parties for comment prior to the completion and release of the final report.
