BIMCO has proposed that the Fourth International Maritime Organization (IMO) Greenhouse Gas Study does not include unrealistically high gross domestic product (GDP) growth projections to predict future transport demand - and thereby emissions - of the shipping industry. The proposal has been made to the expert workshop preparing for the study, which is meeting in London 12-14 March.
BIMCO advises on how you could check whether your solid bulk cargo is exempted from having a requirement to have a ship fitted with a fixed gas fire-extinguishing system.
ASBAGASVOY is a charter party for the gas tanker trade jointly authored by BIMCO and ASBA. It is based on, and follows the sequence of, ASBATANKVOY which for many years has been used for gas tanker fixtures, but introduces gas specific terminology. ASBAGASVOY replaces ASBATANKVOY clauses which pertain to the traditional product tanker trades. The charter party has been developed for both refrigerated and pressurised liquefied gasses such as LPG and petrochemicals. Copyright in ASBAGASVOY is held by ASBA. Optional Additional Clauses have been developed for possible use with ASBAGASVOY. The primary focus of the Optional Additional Clauses is on vessel presentations for petrochemical gases. Other clauses are included because they are often used in gas fixtures.
Due to a couple of incidents in late 2015 and early 2016 shipments of palm kernel shells were were shown to emit very high levels of methane (flammable ) gas in the cargo spaces.
