Design & Operation of Bulk Carriers


This event is organized by RINA and will be held in London, UK.

Since they were developed in the 1950s, bulk carriers have provided a crucial service to world commodities' transportation. Some 5,000 bulk carriers trade around the world.

Following a spate of losses of bulk carriers in the early 1990s, IMO in November 1997 adopted new regulations in SOLAS containing specific safety requirements for bulk carriers. In December 2004, the Maritime Safety Committee adopted a new text for SOLAS chapter XII, incorporating revisions to some regulations and new requirements relating to double-side skin bulk carriers. The International Association of Classification Societies is also developing a set of unified requirements for the classification of bulk carriers. This conference will bring together designers, regulators, class societies and operators to discuss these, and other, aspects of bulk carrier design and operation.
