Port State Control is of particular importance to the BS MOU member Authorities due to the role of shipping in region's trade, the sensitivity of the Black Sea basin and its coastline to environmental damage. Thereby BS MOU member Authorities have dedicated considerable resources to having a rigorous port State control program of the highest standard.This PSC Annual report covers the period between 1st January and 31st December 2013. During this period the BS MOU member Authorties conducted a total of 5,080 initial inspections, representing 10.26% increase as compared with 4,607 initial inspections in 2012. The regional inspection rate is 63.62% which is 1.70% increase compared with 2012. A total of 184 detentions were warranted to ships found with serious deficiencies.This represents a detention percentage of 3.62% which is 1.05% decrease as compared with 215 detentions in 2012. During 2013 a total of 19,022 ...

Ship’s Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery – a challenge to keep under control

Tokyo MoU CIC from 1 September to 30 November 2013 Defects related to propulsion and auxiliary machinery installations have traditionallybeen one of the top six categories of deficiencies recorded during port State control(PSC) inspections in previous years. An average of 7% of the total number of thedeficiencies identified within the Tokyo MOU region are related to machineryinstallations. For the purpose of verifying compliance with the requirements of SOLASConvention Chapter II-1, member Authorities of the Tokyo MOU undertook aConcentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery from1 September to 30 November 2013.During the three-month's period, a total of 8,257 inspections were carried out duringthe CIC by the Tokyo MOU member Authorities, of which 6,367 inspections wereconducted with a CIC questionnaire (77.1%). A total of 282 detentions were recordedduring the CIC inspections, among which 72 or 25.5% of them were detained as adirect result of the CIC. The CIC-topic related detentions rate is 1.13% while theoverall CIC detention rate is 4.4%.Preliminary results indicated that the most significant deficiencies found during thecampaign were related to:the emergency source of power and emergency lighting 468(25.4%),main and auxiliary boilers and boiler feed systems 319 (17.3%),protectivearrangements for machinery to minimize danger to persons with regard to ...

Paris MoU reveals Preliminary Results CIC on Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery

Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery a matter of concern on older ships Weel maintained engine room / Image Credit: Paris MoUPreliminary results from the Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery, carried out between 1 September 2013 and 30 November 2013 in the Paris MoU region show that:68 ships (41% of all detentions) were detained over the 3 month period as a direct result of the CIC for deficiencies related to propulsion and auxiliary machinery. Problem areas included the propulsion of the main engine, cleanliness of the engine room and emergency source of power/emergency generator.In previous years deficiencies related to propulsion and machinery installations accounted on average for 7% of the total number of deficiencies within the Tokyo and Paris MoU´s, ranking number six in comparison with all the deficiencies by categories statistics.Reason enough for the Paris MoU to concentrate attention to this area during a CIC.More than half (54%) of all CIC-topic related detentions involved ships of 20 years or more. This category had a CIC-topic related detention rate of 3.6%, which compares unfavourable to the overall 1.8% CIC-topic related detention rate."This outcome illustrates that wear and tear of propulsion and auxiliary machinery remains an issue, which should ...

Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery: Main Cause of Ship Detention

According to Black Sea MoU CIC preliminary results Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery carried out between 1 September 2013 and 30 November 2013 in the Black Sea MOU region shows the following preliminary results:13 ships have been detained in the Black Sea MOU region during the course of the CIC through deficiencies relating to propulsion and auxiliary machinery. The most notable deficiencies concern documentary evidence of fitness of periodically unattended machinery spaces (7.24%), cleanliness of the engine room, including bilges (4.65%), protective arrangements for machinery to minimize danger to persons (3.19%) and operational conditions of the propulsion machinery and essential auxiliaries (2.19%)During the course of the campaign six member Authorities carried out a total of 1,097 inspections of individual ships using the CIC questionnaire. Of this quantity 31 ships were detained with 42% of detentions being within the CIC scope.A total of 250 deficiencies have been recorded as a result of the campaign out of 1,097 questionnaires submitted.459 (41.84%) inspections concerned general cargo/multi-purpose ships, followed by bulk carriers with 341 (31.08%) inspections, oil tankers with 104 (9.48%) inspections and chemical tankers with 68 (6.2%) inspections.10 (76.92%) of the ships detained for CIC-related deficiencies were general cargo/multipurpose ...
