Ship in Baltimore’s Key Bridge collapse passed inspections: port authority

The cargo ship involved in the collapse of the bridge in the United States city of Baltimore passed overseas inspections and had valid certificates covering its structural integrity and equipment functionality, Singapore’s port authority has said. The Dali container ship underwent two separate foreign port state inspections in June and September 2023, with the earlier examination resulting in the fixing of a “faulty monitor gauge for fuel pressure”, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said in a statement on Wednesday. “Dali’s next classification and statutory surveys are due in June 2024,” the port authority said. Singapore’s port authority announced late on Tuesday that its investigators and those from the Transport Safety Investigation Bureau were en route to Baltimore to assist US authorities. Aljazeera
