Description: Over the last 10 years, between 2008 and 2017, The
Swedish Club received 28 reports concerning engine
room fires. When compared to other Hull and
Machinery (H&M) claims the frequency of engine room
fires is low but the average cost is among the highest -
USD 1,850,000 per occurrence - compared with USD
320,000 for H&M claims in general.
Engine rooms on ships have all the ingredients for a
fire – oxygen, heat and flammable liquids under
pressure. Not surprisingly, one of the dominating
causes is lube-oil or fuel-oil mist spraying onto hot
surfaces and then igniting.
