Preliminary underwater investigations at M / S Estonia, which sank in 1994, have been completed.

In a press release published on Tuesday, the Estonian Accident Investigation Board says that the investigations were more successful than initially thought.

- We managed to carry out most of the planned studies and now a detailed analysis of the collected data will start, which will take approximately three months and on the basis of which further studies will be planned.

Next, we plan to digitize the drawings and create a 3D model of the ship, perform a ferromagnetic survey and install a flow meter close to the wreck, says Rene Arikas, director of the Accident Investigation Board.

Preliminary investigations revealed, among other things, a hole on the starboard side of the hull, which was also visible in a document published last year.

The size of the lesion was at least 4 meters by 22 meters, but its size is not entirely certain, as it also extends below the hull.

The damage also extends extensively to internal structures.

The studies also found that the wreck rests largely on a soft layer of clay, but there is granite nearby, the contribution of which to the damage to the hull is being investigated in further studies.

In addition, the Estonian bow ramp has come off, which is why the car deck of the ship can now be seen.

- We see that there is no ramp in front of the car deck.

We have full visibility on the car deck, Arikas confirmed earlier to Postimees magazine.

In addition, other damage observed in Estonia has also been documented.

For example, there are deformities in the stern of the ship that may have occurred when the stern of the ship first hit the bottom.

M / S Estonia sank on September 28, 1994 in a severe storm.

852 people died in Turma.

New investigations in Estonia began when a document published last year showed that there was a large hole in the starboard side of the hull.
