London P&I Club joins with BV in issuing blackout & engine failure guidance

 

The London P&I Club, in a joint project with leading classification society Bureau Veritas and its casualty and salvage subsidiary TMC Marine, has issued a new booklet providing operational guidance for preventing blackout and main engine failures.

 

This new publication, the second in a series on loss prevention subjects, focuses on marine engineering issues and procedures related to the prevention of loss of propulsion. Its purpose is to provide general guidance and practical advice to marine engineers and shipowners on blackout and main engine failures, the risks associated with loss of propulsion, and the precautions that can be taken to limit and prevent them, said a release.

 

London P&I Club’s Loss Prevention Manager, Mr Carl Durow, says, "The Club has seen an increase in the number of machinery failure-related cases in recent years. In most cases, it is the timing and location of the incident which dictates the severity of the claim. This publication is aimed at raising awareness of the necessary good practices and post-incident investigation activities which in combination can result in significantly reducing the risk of major claims."
