Following our seminar on containership firefighting, we aim to identify solutions needed to make ships and crew safer.

We have established that misdeclaration of cargo is a significant factor in human and financial loss. Should a fire start, some cargoes have the potential to enhance the speed at which the fire spreads. This makes it challenging for the crew to fight the fire using limited resources onboard.

Though containerships have significantly increased in size, SOLAS firefighting and protection regulations have not evolved at the same pace.

We will explore the innovations in containership firefighting while answering the questions below:

  • How should the IMDG Code develop?
  • Are regulations fit for purpose?
  • What are the challenges of planning containership stows?

Booking will be available soon here. The event will be held at HQS Wellington, Temple Stairs, London.
