660 - 10/09 - Iron Ore Fines Loading Issues - India

Date: 15/10/2009

The Club’s earlier LP Bulletins 546 – 10/07 and 647 – 7/09 warn members of the serious risks that can be associated with the carriage of iron ore fines loaded in Indian ports.  Reports of serious incidents continue and include two vessels loaded with this product that have capsized in the last two to three months. At the present time the Club is dealing with 12 current cases involving this commodity. This has increased its concern over safety when shipping iron ore from this area and has prompted this additional and strengthened warning to Members.
