INTERDISCIPLINARY MARITIME PRACTICE WORKSHOP SERIES II Eighth (8th) SESSION ON THURSDAY 15th June 2017
This is the second series of workshops with a theme of “Interdisciplinary Maritime Practice” (IMP), which is jointly organized by The Hong Kong Logistics Management Staff Association (HKLMSA), C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies, PolyU (ICMS) and the Hong Kong Seamen Union (HKSU). It employs the same methodology and format like the IMP Workshop Series I of 2014, which was conceived to cover the entire lifespan of a ship, from the decision to purchase to its final loss or scrapping, and to provide a platform for eminent professionals from the Hong Kong Maritime Industry to share their expertise and valuable experience with fellow professionals, young entrants in particular, in the shipping fraternity of the Greater China Region, in interactive sessions of Q&A discussions.
The Eighth Session of the IMP Workshop Series II is on Casualty Management Part I with focus on Loss of Life, Pollution & Environmental Damages, Special Compensation or SCOPIC, Removal of Wreck and Collision Liability, with a case study as follows:
When a major maritime casualty occurs….
Tanker collision with a container carrier – fire on board – crew abandoned vessel, most rescued but few missing – LOF signed – vessel being towed to port of refuge – grounded enroute within port limit – a fuel tank breached, slight pollution – Salvors triggered SCOPIC – inspection revealed serious damages to ship – Ship-owners tendered notice of abandonment to H&M Underwriters – cargo STS discharged onto sister-vessel and forwarded to destination – Salvors continued making efforts to refloat vessel …
Guest moderator for this 8th Session will be Mr. Rohan Bray from Steamship Mutual P&I Club, Hong Kong, who will take lead to discuss on the management of the above-mentioned issues. Mr. Raymond Wong who will preside over the case study will join the discussions on treatment of the claims arising from the respective issues in the context of General Average, Property and Liability Insurances.
