M/S ESTONIA - Svenska statens haveri - en bok av Stefan Torssell förklarar mycket om Estoniaolyckan 1994 och varför och hur svenska staten beslöt att mörklägga hela historien. Anledningen är att i Sverige skyddar samhället och media inte medborgarna utan makthavarna och makthavarna kan med hjälp av pseudovetenskap hitta på vad som helst för att skydda sig själva. M/S Estoniafärjan var aldrig sjövärdigt, pga inkompetens och korruption hos svenska Sjöfartsinspektionen.
Many people wonder who I am and why I do this web site. The answer is simple. Born at Stockholm, Sweden 1946, question was 1964, what to do with the rest of my life. Study physics and Physical Sciences at the Royal Institute of Technology with the best brains of Sweden designing rockets, spacecrafts and nuclear bombs, etc.? Boring! Luckily the Nobel Prize winning grandfather MS of a friend of mine advised, by chance, against it. Badly paid jobs. Better to study Mechanical Sciences. More interesting and better paid. MS had 1945 been asked to build a Swedish a-bomb and agreed ... if all info was made public! MS didn't get the job (I found out later)! So I studied naval architecture/shipbuilding at Gothenburg, and graduated 1969 and did military services in the Navy 1965/70 and married 1971 a nice girl, IK, whose father was a Latvian seaman having escaped from Soviet Union during WWII, who told me about his adventurous life. What a chance! I liked it! And suddenly, by chance, I was at Yokohama, Japan May 1972/November 1976 assisting building super tankers, etc. Yokohama was a nice place but looked strange. It was bombed back to the stone age 29 May 1945, I was told, but was better not talked about! Two colleagues of mine had been boys at Hiroshima and Nagasaki 1945 that were also bombed. By the Americans. A-bombs! But they never experienced it. Or noticed it. Any a-bombs were dropped on the other side of the towns ... but better not talk about it. Japan is the most civilized country in the world with a fantastic culture since thousands years and I learnt Japanese and was very much influenced by everything but ... no a-bombs exploded there, I found out later. By chance I got a job with a ship owner, BV, at Monte Carlo, Monaco, to assist operating oil tankers, ropax ferries and cruise ships. Much work was by chance in the Middle East so 1980-2007 I visited Egypt almost 100 times with various shipping projects but also learnt, apart from the language, a lot about local past and present history and politics and all the recent wars and poverty. The work with BV lasted until 2000 and included much travel and work in black Africa, Asia and Latin America meeting interesting people and cultures. All by chance. 1991 Soviet Union collapsed and as BV was born at Odessa, Russia, 1913, we opened an office there 1992 to employ Russian seafarers and to do business. It was sad. Many Russians had lost all their illusions and belongings during 70 years of communist terror and the place was a mess, which we wanted to assist sorting out. Still is 2016. I visited Russia/Ukraine, by chance, 33 times 1992/98 built one ship and bought another there ... but didn't learn the language. German worked alright. After that the ex-USSR really collapsed down the drain.
1999 I repaired a ship at Mombasa, Kenya, and met, by chance, a very nice and intelligent German/Saxon girl, EM, whose father, WM, was a former Uppersilesian mine worker that 1945 had fled to Saxony, had as a Wismut AG employé assisted Stalin to build a Soviet a-bomb 1949 but had 1958 been tortured by and kicked out of the German Democratic Republic leaving little EM alone behind. EM had fled later herself and wanted to move back to Saxony, when she retired. Saxony was then, 1999, a sad place after 40 years of East German communist terror 1949/89. It was an interesting experience. 2001 EM and I spent time at Freiberg i. Sa, when USA was attacked by some Arabs 911 according media. We watched it on TV by chance. "It doesn't look real", said EM. "I agree", I said, based on my knowledge of Mechanical Sciences. Structures do not collapse from top down. I can prove it. EM got sick at little later and died suddenly 2002. EM really encouraged me with my M/S Estonia and 911 works. "The people should know the Truth", she maintained. And there we are today. No US a-bombs exploded 1945 and no Stalin a-bomb 1949 based on my experiences in Japan and with EM's father. And M/S Estonia didn't lose the bow visor 1994. And no Arabs destroyed NY skyscrapers from top down by gravity 2001. I have also added the US human space travel hoaxes 1961-2016 to my web site. There is one common feature of all these events. Assisted by propaganda spread by media people believe they took place as suggested by the authorities, while I conclude they never happened or that something else happened based on my cosmopolitan experiences and clear thinking. I know plenty people get upset learning my conclusions but they haven't seen the world I have seen, by chance, in my interesting life. Life is full of chances! Most people do not take them.

varför lilla senegalflaggade M/S 'Joola'
kapsejsade och sedan flöt upp och ned på
det oskadade skrovet den 28 september 2002 utanför
Gambia. Hennes deplacement var ca 2 150 ton och
dödvikten 500 ton vid djupgående d=3.1 meter.
Hennes metacentrum M var ca 5,9 meter över kölen
K, KM=5,9 m.
The M/V AL SALAM BOCCACCIO 98, was a Panama registered ropax vessel, which sank on 3 February, 2006, at approximately 01.33 hours Egypt local time (23.33 hours UTC on February 02, 2006), during a journey across the Red Sea, a short international voyage, where she departed from the Port of Duba, Saudi Arabia, with destination to Safaga, Egypt.
It was suggested that (i) a fire broke out in the main RO-RO cargo space - garage - in the ship's superstructure (car deck), that (ii) water of the spray fire extinguishing system used to extinguish the fire could not escape, as (iii) the scuppers were blocked and that (iv) the weight of this water caused the vessel to capsize and sink and (v) that >1 000 persons drowned.
The Italian flag/registry M/S Costa Concordia was incorrectly designed, substandard, unsafe and not seaworthy at departure 13 January 2012 with ship owner's and Italian maritime authority's knowledge and the insurances were not valid. Crew, mostly underpaid foreigners, were not available aboard to muster passengers and escort them to the lifeboats and to launch all lifesaving appliances to enable safe and complete abandon ship of all passengers in an emergency. The ship had 25 illegal, watertight doors in the hull that caused the capsize the following day. Media has never reported these simple facts. By pure luck most people aboard managed to leave the ship anyway before it capsized and sank.
You expect that the marine industry really wants to learn from accidents to achieve better safety.
Accidents occur every day at sea. Do we learn anything from the investigations? Are the corrective measures right? Three very big accidents come to mind - the Exxon Valdez grounding in 1989 (35 000 tonnes of crude oil spilled), the Estonia sinking in 1994 (at least 852 dead) and the Erika sinking in 1999 (>10 000 tonnes of heavy fuel spilled). What do these three accidents have in common? One answer is that the casualty investigations were not done as agreed by the IMO. The IMO has adopted resolutions about how accident investigations shall be done since more than 40 years. The early resolutions were recommendations; the latest is a Code for the Investigation of Marine Casualties and Incidents. If the spirit of the resolutions is followed, there should be no problem. The resolutions are sometimes not followed. Independent innovators of better safety at sea like Heiwa Co have difficulties.
According PART A, MANDATORY STANDARDS REGARDING PROVISIONS OF THE ANNEX TO THE STCW CONVENTION, Chapter VI: Standards regarding emergency, occupational safety, security, medical care and survival functions, Knowledge, understanding and proficiency, all seamen should know and be trained about, e.g.:
(i) Safety precautions during launch and recovery of a fast rescue boat, FRB,
(ii) Launching and recovery of fast rescue boat, FRB, in prevailing and adverse weather and sea conditions.
I explain here all about a SOLAS Fast Rescue Boat, FRB, and why it is useless, unsafe, no means of rescue and kill seamen in spite of IMO recommending not to train with an FRB or that Port State Control, PSC, should not penalize ships not training with an FRB, etc. And why the IMO is doing nothing.
Recently (2006) a newly built passenger ship suddenly - in a few seconds without warning - rolled over >20° in fine weather and many passengers were hurt losing balance and being thrown into walls and on decks. All water in the deck swimming pool flowed out. There was panic. Then the vessel stabilized itself at abt 15° angle of list and slowly the vessel became upright again. Why did this happen?
It has of course happened before! A couple of years ago (1999) it happened to another newly built passenger ship at breakfast time. The ship suddenly rolled over, the whole breakfast buffet was thrown into the wall and on the deck and passengers lost balance and were thrown around. The ship owners quickly blamed the sudden loll on the rudders (sic)! They had turned too quickly and the vessel listed. Do you believe that? In the latter case the vessel remained at >15° list even after the rudders were put back straight. And slowly the vessel became upright. What actually happened?
Vinnova - Verket för innovationssystem - fick i april 2001 uppdrag att hantera regeringens beslutade program för utvecklings- och forskningsarbete inom sjösäkerhetsområdet.
Bakgrund - Estonia hade en rad sjösäkerhetsbrister
Vinnova säger själv på sin webbsida att bakgrunden för detta beslut var bl.a. Estoniakommissionens lämnade slutrapport (5) om M/S 'Estonia's förlisning:
"I rapporten (5) konstaterade kommissionen att fartyget hade en rad sjösäkerhetsbrister. Dessa avsåg bl.a. fartygets konstruktion, utrymningsmöjligheter och rutiner, räddningsutrustning och räddningssystem. Enligt kommissionen var det huvudsakligen dessa brister som låg bakom olyckan och dess allvarliga konsekvenser. Kommissionen rekommenderade även andra åtgärder för att förbättra sjösäkerheten, bl.a. framtagande av system för kvalitetssäkring vid konstruktions och tillverkning av fartyg, säkerhetsanalyser, system för utrymning och räddning efter ett fartygshaveri och ny livräddningsutrustning".
This paper should have been read at the 'Learning from Marine Incidents II' conference in London 14 March 2002. The Royal Institution of Naval Architects howevere decided to stop the presentation, so you have to read it here.
Marine accidents occur every day. Most accidents are minor and are investigated by professional hull or P&I underwriters surveyors to everyone's satisfaction. Some accidents are bigger and may be investigated by persons from the flag states accident investigation board. The results of such investigations and subsequent reports may contribute to safety at sea. Unfortunately where extremely serious incidents occur, such as large oil spills or ferry sinkings with a large death toll, there is a danger that the subsequent investigation becomes entangled with vested interests and the cause of the incident attributed may vary from the actual causes. Regrettably this can mean a deterioration in safety at sea. The author looks at some recent marine accidents and the resulting investigations.
The COULOMBI EGG oil tanker design is the only alternative to Double Hull tankers approved by the IMO in accordance with Marpol I/13F(5) since 1997. It was developed 1990-1997 by Anders Björkman, Heiwa Co and it's superior environmental protection and tanker safety are adapted according to damage statistics to minimize all known risks. After IMO approved it USA announced that such tankers could not enter US ports!
Klas Brännström, Karin Andersson, Mats Viberg, Svetlana Adamovic, Jonas Ringsberg, Per Hogström och Chalmers TH:s oredliga forskning 2006-2014. Chalmers bekräftar 2015 - Arkimedes gäller ej i Sverige 2016:
"Chalmers goda rykte bibehålls genom att inte samarbeta med dig"
Vad kan nya rektorn Stefan Bengtsson säga om det?
Most FPUs - Floating Production Units - are FPSOs - Floating Production Storage & Offloading units built similar to sea going oil tankers, i.e. enlarged pontoons. However an FPSO is not an oil tanker and the optimum design should be completely different. Like a life buoy - or a cake. And then it can be built on one or more 50x50 meters slipways. There is no need for a long building dock or similar. But you need a jetty and a free space of abt 200 meters outside the jetty to moor the complete, assembled unit for outfitting. It is also good to have 30 meters depth outside the jetty.
The M/T 'Erika' tanker incident outside Brittany the 11 and 12 December 1999 has provoked questions. The Erika broke apart on 12 December 1999, while underway at sea and spilled >10 000 tons of heavy fuel oil. Why? A very stupid answer was given 21 February 2005!
The M/T Prestige suffered a fracture in the side shell on 14 November 2002 during a spell of very severe weather outside Spain. The Master aboard, Captain Apostolos Mangouras, was not responsible for it.
The double hull VLCC 'M/T Limburg', b. 2000, suffered an explosion in the double hull on 6 October 2002, at the single point mooring buoy outside the offshore oil terminal of the Ash Shihr Terminal south east of Sanaa, Yemen. The vessel was 20% part-loaded with cargo in some wing tanks at the time and the weather was good. The draught of the ship may have been about 7-8 meters.
This was the first time that a serious explosion occurred in a double hull VLCC and the question is of course what caused it?
Most FPUs - Floating Production Units - are FPSOs - Floating Production Storage & Offloading units but you could also say that there is Fearfully Poor Safety Offshore!
An FPSO receives live crude from the sea floor, kills it in a topside production installation that sends the dead crude to storage tanks in the hull of the FPSO - the bottom side. Later the crude is offloaded to shuttle tankers at regular intervals.
Nu är det 2016 och 102 år sedan första världskriget bröt ut och 60 år sedan kalla kriget startade. Svenska skolor och media meddelar en version av historien som inte överensstämmer med min personliga uppfattning av första världskriget och vad som hände efteråt:
En bosnisk terrorist betald av hemliga krafter hade under sommaren 1914 i Sarajevo mördat Österrike/Ungerns kronprinsärkehertigpar, dvs en rätt dryg playboy med en helt korkad fru. Och 1945 dog en massa folk i Sétif!
Svenskar vet 2016 mycket litet om Östtyskland eller DDR, den tyska (o)demokratiska republiken, som var vårt grannland i söder under drygt 41 år 1949-1990. Anledningen är att svenska myndigheter och media tycker det är bäst att glömma hela skiten och Sveriges stöd av diktaturens brottslingar. Här följer min personliga sammanfattning av DDR:
Östtyskland/DDR grundades 1949 av några tyska kommunister i den av Sovjetunionen ockuperade delen av Tyskland efter andra världskriget veckan efter Förbundsrepubliken Tyskland bildades av USA, England och Frankrike. På en vecka delades Tyskland itu! Utan diskussion!

Allt mörkertal om att terror hotar är väl ingen nyhet men ökar det? Redan Stalin använde sig av terror i Sovjetunionen 1917-1953, dvs helt enkelt mördade eller spärrade in alla verkliga eller inbillade motståndare. Det hotet förskräckte och skadade hela befolkningen permanent. Hitler använde sig också av terror i Tyskland 1933-1945, dvs helt enkelt mördade eller spärrade in alla verkliga eller inbillade motståndare - precis som Stalin.
On 28 September 2016 it is 22 years since M/S Estonia sank in the Baltic Sea and about 840 persons drowned and 12 Estonian crew members disappeared for good. The authorities managed to keep secret that the ferry was unseaworthy and transported ex-USSR war material in order to invent a completely improbable cause of accident; a wrongly designed bow visor that dropped off due to enormous wave impacts in very severe weather. But there was no real storm on 28 September 1994 and no visor fell off.
Brainwashed Americans think that compressing two Uranium metal pieces with a neutron in between at high pressure results in an explosion and that it was a good idea that the US Army Air Forces dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan August 1945 killing children and women. They do not understand that the destructions were simply staged events. The Americans were deceived (fooled) by their own leaders and media, while others got scared ... and are still worried. The Japanese towns were simply destroyed by conventional napalm carpet fire bombings because compressing two Uranium metal pieces with a neutron in between at high pressure does not result in an explosion.
This article of mine about human and other, not so funny, space travel jokes and hoaxes is split up into 6 parts and many chapters for easy references and will take some time to study. Hope you will enjoy it. Most of it is quite hilarious. Imagine how events can be staged in space! Or actually on Earth. By Hollywood. No human beings have ever been in space.

Retired Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill acknowledged November 2014 that he had on the orders of US President B. Obama fired two rounds into the forehead of Usama Bin Laden during a 2011 raid on his secret compound in Pakistan. O'Neill says more and more people were becoming aware of his role and that his name was bound to become public anyway. Robert unfortunately killed in cold blood a person that had nothing to do with the destruction of the WTC-complex. Shit happens.
The American audience quickly understood that no skyscraper can ever progressively, globally collapse POUFF, POUFF by gravity from top down due to a structural failure (or fire) up top and that allegedly scientific reports by terrorists like professor Bazant of Northwestern University and dr. Sunder of NIST are false.
No Arab terrorists hijacked any US planes on 11 September 2001 to fly two of them into the WTC towers at New York. What was shown live on TV that day incl. two towers disappearing in clouds of dust was just a pre-recorded show to fool the American public to enable some crazy terrorists to start wars all over and collect money at the same time. The towers were demolished from bottom up but the same terrorists managed to convince US structural engineers at ASCE and NIST to suggest that structures collapse from top down. However, no structure can collapse from top down. The US structural engineers prostituted and sold themselves to some criminal terrorists. Imagine that! Imagine that a structural member pops out of a structure. Is it possible? Let's check it.
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST, at Washington, DC, has 2008 explained the complete destruction of skyscraper World Trade Centre 7 on 911 as a result of a single structural failure due to thermal expansion (due to a fire) initiating a 'classic progressive collapse' destroying the complete building.
There exist in structural damage analysis theory no such phenomenon: a 'classic progressive collapse' .
It is just a stupid invention, a fantasy, by non-regulatory, terrorist agency like NIST in support of terrorism. You should wonder why the NIST staff - covered persons - are not in jail.
The Odéon Tower in Monaco is built 2009-2015 at Bd de Ténao in Monaco by the French Vinci Company on behalf of Monegasque princepals (sic) at a small plot of steep land, that borders also to some small houses and villas of Beausoleil, France, on the other side of the border where I live ... but not behind the Odéon Tower.

The theme of the 2013 Engineering Mechanics Institute conference was "Mechanics for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructures" and the program was a forum where engineers and mechanicians contribute their expertise to one of the most pressing questions of our society:
How can we make the nation's infrastructures safer, more durable, more affordable, and more environmentally friendly during their entire lifetime?

If you Google on Fast Rescue Boats, you'll find the Heiwa Co web page on first Google page. That page explains why a Fast Rescue Boat, FRB, is useless as a life saving appliance, LSA on ships at sea in spite of being a SOLAS requirement. Reason is that an FRB is difficult to launch from a seagoing ship and impossible to retrieve at sea and that seamen may be killed in the process. FRBs are not really supposed to be retrieved at sea! They are best used from shore!
