Caos on ferry car deck preceding engine fail
17 cars collided on a ferry car deck when one of the two main engines on Villum Clausen’s suddenly went out, as the express ferry was on a crossing from Ystad to Rønne last tuesday. A single passenger experienced minor injuries.
The shipping company has explained that the ship's computer automatically performs a ”shut down” if it detects an error in one of the ship's gas turbines. It is this rapid shutdown of the engine that the passengers experienced.
