The Swedish Accident Investigation Board wants to investigate both the wreck and the bottom conditions around Estonia. In addition, the Commission wants to talk to several survivors after the accident.
The Swedish Accident Investigation Board, which cooperates with the Accident Investigation Boards in both Finland and Estonia, has been able to watch the unedited film material that forms the basis for Henrik Evertsson’s documentary, which was shown on D-play last autumn.
In addition, meetings have been held with some survivors after the accident.
The Swedish Accident Investigation Board is now announcing that both more investigations of the ship and the bottom around it, and more talks with survivors are needed.
“Investigators are working, among other things, to gain access to drawings of the ship and surveys of the bottom conditions at the site. Metallurgical analyzes and analyzes of the hull structure will also need to be done to clarify the origin of the two holes in the ship’s hull,” the Accident Investigation Board wrote in a press release.
