This 348m 9100 TEU vessel snapped 9 mooring ropes when a freak wind swept through the port of Durban, South Africa in October 2016. The vessel made headline news when it drifted into the entry mouth of the port blocking all vessels coming in and out. TNPA dispatched tug boats and brought the vessel back to the quayside. 80mm High tensile steel was torn and ripped apart with some sections folded up like paper. 

6Sigma was flown out from Cape Town to assess the damage, write up the repair methodology, execute the engineering drawings and bring the vessel back to operation.
