3 SCENARIO 2 Date: 01 April 2014 Location: Port of Galle, southern Sri Lanka Problem: At 1130Z, – Container vessel MV Dondra Express is unloading shipping containers in Port of Galle. It is moored at dock in middle of its offloading containers operation. – As ship’s crane lifts one particular container of “scrap metal” TGHU G1, a crane cable breaks causing container to fall 25 meters where it ruptures, contents spill on the dock and into the bay. – Workers immediately police up scattered “scrap metal” in area while others try to repair crane. – Most “scrap metal” on dock is put into another container while smaller bits are pushed in water. – Workers hose the dock off and resume offload operations. Several shipyard support trucks/vehicles drive thru hosed off areas in the course of their duties. – Other containers that were on MV Dondra Express adjacent to where “scrap metal” container was secured are now trans loaded to a smaller container ship in the harbor, MV Mercmas I as well as to awaiting vehicles for overland transport. – At some point it is discovered that TGHU G1 was a hot box emitting profuse radiation due to having radioactive contents, stevedores get sick, unknown amounts of radioactive material may have contaminated dock area and surrounding containers on original ship. – Radioactive material may have spread in harbor, spread to another ship, and been trucked inland to Galle and points beyond … 3

13 CONTAINER INFO The code on the container—TGHU G1 TGHU prefix tags it as the property of Textainer, a Bermuda-based shipping concern that owns more than 2.4 million boxes just like it The lone zero is a “check digit” that helps confirm the box’s identity 22G1 designates it as an unventilated, 20-foot-long dry shipping container is the unique part of the ID, that lets shippers and investigators track its long, winding journey to Galle A Textainer spokesperson says the company last saw container in April 2012, when its six steel walls were leased to “an established customer” Sri Lankan officials say the customer was Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), a shipping goliath headquartered in Geneva In October 2012, the box was packed at a metal yard in Saudi Arabia under the auspices of Sun Metal Casting, a scrap-metal dealer in the Arab emirate of Ajman In recent years, scrap metal has become a booming global business, with manufacturers continually searching for cheaper places to get metals like steel and copper ′s load was bound for a foundry in Colombo, 110 KM miles north of Galle A photo snapped by the shipper before ′s doors were closed and sealed with a thumb- sized lead-and-plastic tag shows radiators and coils of copper wire piled almost to the roof – Assuming photo is actually of the same container and the container wasn’t tampered with 13
