Besiktas Shipping of Turkey has dismissed reports a fatal accident at Gisan shipyard occurred on board one of its vessels.

Besiktas Shipping of Turkey has dismissed reports a fatal accident at Gisan shipyard occurred on board one of its vessels.

It was claimed three men perished during lifeboat testing on the 5,041-gt product tanker Mainland, which was reportedly being built for Besiktas.

Yavuz Kalkavan, managing director of Besiktas Group, says the tragedy actually occurred on the 21,500-dwt Turquise T owned by Galata Shipping, an unrelated company.

Kalkavan adds his firm is not building any vessels at Gisan, suggesting the Mainland is owned by compatriot, Dora Shipping.

TradeWinds reported yesterday that Mehmet Oyar, founder of Gisan shipyard, claimed the accident had saved 19 lives.

He said the incident prevented a greater tragedy as all on board the 19 seater boat would have perished had the cable snapped during an emergency at sea.

Oyar also dismissed suggestions sandbags could have been used instead of people, saying it was normal to use staff.

Twelve other workers were injured when the Chinese-made lifeboat crashed into the water on 11 August.
