HONORING THE MEMORY OF HENRI KUMMERMAN (1908-1984), EX-PRESIDENT OF MACGREGOR, GREAT PHILANTHROPIST AND FOUNDER OF KUMMERMAN FOUNDATION


Almost a century ago, MacGregor Brothers were the first to design metallic hatch covers, aiming at safer operations at sea for the crew, the cargo and the vessel. Proper use and maintenance of cargo handling systems mean a competitive advantage to the vessel. Cargo wet damage on bulk carriers is a recurring problem. Vessels operate in harsh environment, poor maintenance of hatch covers may cause leakage, damage and hazard to the ship and the crew. In this presentation, we identify the main causes of wet damage and share loss prevention advice on how to prevent wet damage from occurring to the vessels. We focus on cargo claims statistics for wet damage claims relating to bulk carriers. We highlight the most common issues that contribute to these figures. This presentation is to raise awareness, to communicate and collaborate, to properly maintain the systems on board vessels.
