UK P&I Club, a leading provider of P&I insurance and other services to the international shipping community, has launched its latest video in a series of award-winning reflective learning training videos, on a burn injury to the first engineer while inspecting a leak in the engine room.
Lessons Learnt: Bunker Spill
At the time of the incident the subject vessel was alongside loading bulk cargo. At the same time heavy fuel oil was being loaded from a bunker barge. Weather conditions were good but it was very cold (-20 C°) and there was thick ice and snow on deck.
The main engine lube oil cooler was found to be leaking at the sea water outlet flange and collected water showed signs of oil contamination.
