Understanding liquefaction and the associated risks

20 October 2020

BIMCO attended a very useful webinar on understanding liquefaction risks associated with the carriage of Group A cargoes in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. Members are encouraged to view this webinar for a better understanding of the problems that can occur with Group A cargoes.

Liquefaction and Dynamic Separation

30 January 2021

Liquefaction is the well-known phenomenon that affects the carriage of Group A cargoes in the IMSBC Code. Dynamic separation is a new phenomenon recently incorporated in the IMSBC Code under the Bauxite cargo entry. This section provides information on these two phenemona which are moisture-related instabilities that affect the ship’s stability and how the master and crew can recognise the signs of these two two phenemona to enable them to act swiftly to avert disasters of capsizing and loss of crew.

BIMCO supports new Group A definition of cargoes that may liquefy

17 September 2019

BIMCO has contributed to a discussion at the IMO to change the definition of Group A cargoes that may liquefy, after new research on liquefaction of bauxite cargoes concluded that dynamic separation can also affect cargo stability in addition to liquefaction.

Dangers associated with the carriage of iron ore fines

19 November 2020

Iron ore fines, if not carried safely under the requirements of the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes ( IMSBC) Code, can be extremely problematic due to its liquefaction tendencies and can risk stability to ship and safety of crew.
