ACCIDENTS OCCURRING DURING ROUTINE MOORING OPERATIONS

INTERTANKO has been contacted by BP who are interested in knowing whether we/our members have noticed any increase in the number of accidents that have being occurring during routine mooring operations, particularly regarding the seamanship aspects relating to routine line handling, bights in ropes, rope stoppers etc.

The INTERTANKO secretariat has not received any notification of such incidents or indeed of any increase in such incidents from our members. For statistical purposes we would be pleased to receive details of any such occurrences from our members. The raw data will of course be treated in confidence and only an overview assessment will be passed to BP.

For information, please contact Howard Snaith e-mail howard.snaith@intertanko.com
