Unsafely transferring wood pellets increases the possibility of fire

Peter Hazell, Assistant Vice President, Head of FDD Skuld, focused on the various incidents concerning former coal fired power stations that have started to burn biomass as feedstock in order to enhance sustainability of fuel sources. This results to shipments of wood pellets intended to be burned. Most of these shipments are executed without incident but there are significant hazards associated with the carriage of wood pellets.

Notes on safe seafarer ship-to-ship transfer

Britannia P&I’s Loss Prevention team published an informational paper on the best way to transfer personnel from one ship to another. There’s a variety of ways to do so, but the most important thing is safety. Generally, the operations are all different as they hide different dangers, concerning the ‘product’ being transferred.

Britannia P&I considers the benefits of CCTV cameras on vessels

Brittania P&I considers the benefits of CCTV cameras on board ships, as a number of visually recorded and publicised maritime incidents highlight the value of such recordings when investigating incidents and determine facts. Mainly, the recordings are of a big help when dealing with accidents that have occurred or have allegedly occurred. CCTV footage can make investigations easier, and also improve the possibility of more findings.
