On March 3, the 270 meter long, 74375 dwt MSC Madrid collided with the 199 meter long, 14012 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Primula Seaways off Flushing, Netherlands. The MSC Madrid had made a turn which caused it to strike into the port side of the Primula Seaways. Both vessels sustained significant damage above the waterline and were detained until surveys could be completed. The Primula Seaways was found seaworthy and allowed to proceed on its voyage to Ghent later the same day. The MSC Madrid was also allowed to continue on its voyage from Hamburg to Antwerp. No reports of injuries or pollution released. Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
