Québec, Quebec, 11 June 2018 – Today, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) released its investigation report (M17C0220) on the September 2017 mechanical failure and subsequent fire on board the tug Brochu in Port-Cartier, Quebec. No injuries or pollution were reported, but the fire caused extensive damage to the tug.

Early on, TSB investigators discovered a number of unsafe conditions that could potentially affect the crews and machinery operations of hundreds of other vessels worldwide having similar arrangements. Therefore in December 2017 the TSB issued a safety advisory to a wide range of Canadian and international stakeholders to inform them of the issue and encourage them to take appropriate action.
