Bulk Carrier Casualty Report

      5/3/2001

Bulk Carrier Casualty Report

INTERCARGO has published its analysis of the 14 bulk carrier losses accounting for 23 lives lost during the year 2000 including a commentary of trends over the period 1991-2000. INTERCARGO has been producing an annual Bulk Carrier Casualty Report for many years. The Report is written to raise general awareness that every year bulk carriers are lost, often under normal operating conditions. The Report covers all types of dry bulk carriers over 10,000 dwt, including combination and ore carriers. This year it is not restricted to marine casualties that only involved the total loss of a ship.

Serious casualties or 'near misses' that involved actual or suspected hull structural damage, loss of life, heavy contact damage or severe pollution have also been listed for information and lessons learned, although have not been included in the analysis. Routine incidents of grounding, engine failure or collision have not been listed on the basis that such incidents can equally occur to all ship types. Four of the serious casualties listed, the Ais Mamas, Brave Master, Countess and Pep Nautic, went straight to scrap because of their condition. Arguably, they all could be considered as 'very near misses'.

This sought after publication contains increasingly unique information supplied by a wide variety of Intercargo Associate Members including all major classification societies and Clarkson Research Studies. It will undoubtedly prove helpful to anyone interested in the causes, effects and prevention of bulk carrier losses and in this respect, a number of copies are made available to the IMO for policy and research purposes.
