Pages count: 20
Description: In 2013, Skuld published the first edition of Bulk Mineral Cargo Liquefaction
Pocket Book to assist our Members and their crew in identifying the hazards
and safeguards against bulk cargoes which may liquefy during carriage. It
was reported at the time that between 2010 and 2013 liquefaction casualties
cost the marine insurance industry over USD 100 million. Since first
publishing this booklet there has been a continued focus on such cargoes and
revisions of international conventions to further safeguard against casualties.
Unfortunately, there has continued to be serious incidents where the cause
has been cargo shift or liquefaction. Intercargo has kindly supplied the Club
with updated statistics relating to bulk carrier casualties and between 2008
and 2017 a total of 53 bulk carriers over 10,000 deadweight tons have been
identified as total losses, 9 of which have identified cargo failures as a cause.
Sadly these losses also accounted for 101 lives lost over the same period.
To continue to highlight and assist our Members and their crew, Skuld has
taken this opportunity to revise this booklet with the assistance of Brookes
Bell so that it reflects the updated regulations currently in force.
