297 - 04/03 - Increase of damage claims to berths and fenders - El Dekeila - Egypt

We would like to advise Members that there has recently been an increase in the number of claims raised by Alexandria Port Authority, in particular El Dekeila port, for damage to fenders and quays. This increase has not only affected the number of claims, but also to the value.  Alexandria Port Authority (APA) insists on immediate payment for its claims prior to departure of the vessel concerned.

Whilst we understand encouraging discussions are in hand with the new Chairman of the APA, the Club would still recommend precautions be taken, especially the taking of photographs on/prior to berthing, where possible.
