Description of Incident

A CTV (crew transfer vessel) collided with a fixed platform when one of the engines failed. The CTV was approaching a platform to transfer crew onto it, when there was a failure of control of the port inner main engine, causing it to continue to drive the vessel forward. Whilst control of the engine and hence the vessel was regained before coming into contact with the platform, collision could not be avoided, and there was damage to the starboard side of the wheelhouse. No-one was injured.
