The inspection agency will carefully examine covers, machines, rescue equipment on the ten hydrofoils, said Le Minh Chau, deputy head of the ministry’s Traffic Safety Department on February 27.

They will also closely inspect technical safety, fire fighting and prevention and environmental protection.

Although the hydrofoil fire and explosion did not cause any human damage on January 20, it has affected the transport industry’s reputation, said Chau.

The cause of the hydrofoil accident on January 20 is still under investigation.
