An air compressed system used to control the engine and steering controls for a marine transport barge had failed, causing a major collision. O’Donnell Consulting Engineers performed an extensive forensic investigation of the system. It was determined that the system contained a defective safety valve which was the primary root cause for the system failure, which caused a collision with another vessel. The valve had a latent defect exonerating the ship owner per Maritime Law.
