Today we have published our investigation report on the rupture of a cargo tank containing styrene monomer on board the Cayman Islands registered chemical tanker Stolt Groenland on 28 September 2019. The large quantity of vapour released as a result of the catastrophic rupture subsequently ignited, resulting in a fireball. Two crew were injured and fire fighting efforts lasted over 6 hours, with 15 emergency responders also sustaining injuries during the emergency response.
