The Club has been recently advised of frequent rain in Surigao, Philippines and unsafe, wet nickel ore cargo being presented for loading.
We are aware of a number of ships, currently loading in the area, which are experiencing problems.
We would take this opportunity to urge our Members, which intend to load nickel ore from Philippines, to be extra vigilant.
