Implosion of the submarine near the Titanic: this incredible revelation about the commander who would have caused the drama

A new theory on the reasons for the implosion of Titan is now put forward by experts. According to Dailymail, the latter thus explained that a certain number of economic measures could prove fatal for the Titan. Comparing the Titan to the Alvin, a U.S. government research submersible that has safely completed more than 4,500 deep-sea dives since 1973, experts point to a number of rulings that may have doomed the Titan, including the “mother ship” that brought the Titan to the Titanic dive site.


A fatal choice?

To support their point, they evoked the Alvin submersible, much more reliable according to them (the disadvantage of the Alvin is its smallness: the submarine can take only three people to the bottom of the ocean). Unlike the Titan, the Alvin was designed as a sphere with an all-titanium hull, which was transported to the dive site on the deck of a mother ship, while the Titan was towed through the choppy waters of the North Atlantic on a small diving platform, risking damage to the vessel. Experts thus blamed the CEO for hiring a cheaper, shoddy “mother ship” on rough seas.

The Alvin research submarine is transported to the dive sites on the deck of a specialized mother ship, equipped with custom winches and a large crane that places it in the ocean. By contrast, Titan did not have a dedicated mother ship, and to save costs was towed out to sea during the fatal dive by a smaller chartered vessel, the Polar Prince.

tossed about quite brutally”

The Polar Prince, a Canadian Coast Guard vessel, was smaller and older than the vessels OceanGate had used in previous years, in an effort to save costs on the CEO’s part. Using a towline, the ship dragged the Titan hundreds of miles out to sea, over the launch pad used to submerge and recover the submarine.


Asked if towing the Titan would damage it, a company spokesperson told The Times: “OceanGate is unable to provide additional information at this time.“.
Arnie Weissmann, editor of Travel Weekly, took a trip with OceanGate a few months ago. “I felt like the sub and the rig had been tossed around pretty rough“, he told the Times.

As a reminder, the Titan submersible lost communication with its support vessel on June 18, during a descent to the wreck of the Titanic, approximately 12,500 feet below the surface. A few days later, its wreckage was found on the ocean floor, and investigators believe the submarine was crushed under the immense pressure of the depths.

In addition to OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, four other people have died: British adventurer Hamish Harding, 58; Pakistani tycoon Shahzada Dawood, 48, and his son Suleman Dawood, 19; French Titanic expert Paul-Henry Nargeolet, 77.
