About

The General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) and the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) are jointly organizing the 42nd Maritime Knowledge Shipping Session (MKSS) titled “Container Ship Stack Collapses at Sea & Vessel Decarbonisation".

This webinar is part of the MKSS, a series of seminars where insurance and maritime experts are invited to present insights and analysis on the current and emerging trends in the marine insurance and maritime sectors.

This webinar is free of charge. LCH Lockton Pte Ltd has proudly sponsored the MKSS series since 2007.

Overview

This session would explore why container ship stack collapses at sea, where they are happening, the commercial/insurance risks involved when a container collapse at sea occurs and the consequential costs that may accumulate after such events. Under the terms of most bills of lading and charter party agreements, the carrier has some defences against liability following such events and the likelihood of being able to rely on such defences.

The presentation will also briefly look at the latest emissions targets that the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) have announced for 2030 and for 2050 and the changes to Annex VI of the MARPOL Convention that the Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO has adopted under MEPC 76. It will also look at the far stricter emission standards that the European Union has recently announced will need to be adhered to in European waters. There are numerous proposed options for alternative fuels, some of which have not been commercially tested for reliability when produced in the large quantities that will be required, raising questions about quality, storage, and supply. Most of these alternatives, which may need to be employed as “dual fuels”.

All the issues arising out of stricter shipping environmental standards could have serious insurance implications. A vessel in breach of international requirements that leads to the failure to obtain the necessary certificates may be considered to make a vessel technically “unseaworthy”. Such a charge could leave vessel owners and charterers with wider exposures under their bills of lading and charter party agreements than may be realised.
