Baltic Sea ship accidents number

By Curious

There are many accidents in this area. In every 3 days at least 1 ship(cargo ship, tanker, passenger ship) is involved in troubles.
For a year there are about 120 collisions, fire, running aground etc.
Baltic Sea Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) informed that 125 ships were affected despite the efforts to prevent them.
Serious accidents happily are a small number of all.
There are some places that are dangerous in the Baltic sea: The Straits of Denmark and the area off Helsinki.
There is a heavy traffic between Helsinki and Tallinn and the Gulf of Finland.
The ships have to give information about tense situations to the shipping lines in order to prevent problems and heavy accidents.
