The 2020 Navigational Claims report by the Swedish Club is focusing on a ro-ro vessel which eventually grounded due to the fact that the Master and the Navigation Officer did not implement a passage plan.
The Swedish Club issued its February 2020 monthly safety scenario where a handysize bulk carrier was in ballast condition, sailing through an archipelago, while the winds were of Beaufort scale 10. The vessel eventually hit rocks, drifting on an island.
The Swedish Club analyzes an incident of a collision of a container ship with a fishing vessel, while in restricted visibility. The container ship continued its voyage after the incident, which was a very bad decision by the Master, the Club stressed.
In its Loss prevention – Navigational claims publication, the Swedish Club describes a collision between two vessels in a narrow channel. In this case, while there was a verbal agreement to pass ‘starboard to starboard’, one of the two vessels did not maintain position on its starboard side of the fairway.
The Swedish Club shares lessons learned from a loss of anchor incident, which took place in heavy weather. The anchor and chain were lost and the vessel was not allowed to continue its journey until the anchor and chain had been replaced.
Swedish Club focuses on a collision incident concerning a container vessel which collided with a fishing vessel in challenging visibility conditions, with the Club highlighting that a vessel should not alter to port towards a vessel on its port bow in restricted visibility as vessel A did in this collision.
The Swedish Club issued its Navigational Claims 2020, this time focusing on a collision that took place in a narrow channel between two vessels, which although had verbal communication in conducting starboard-to-starboard operation, they end up colliding.
Swedish Club’s Navigational Claims 2020 issue focuses on collision incidents, this time presenting a collision caused after a vessel’s grounding, believed to have been caused because the master did not follow the passage plan as is.
The 2020 Navigational Claims issue by the Swedish Club, discusses a collision that took place in a river, with one of the two vessels involved having made the most crucial mistake by drifting away in the opposite fairway, affected by the weather conditions and current.
Swedish Club’s Navigational Claims 2020 issue pays great attention to a collision incident, highlighting that both vessels saw the danger but none took preventive actions to avoid the collision, resulting to one of the vessels listing.
