Programme and links

Project cargo is a broad term. It is used to describe the transportation of oversized and often heavy items or shipments consisting of complex and high value cargoes, most of which are critical components in large engineering projects worldwide. Sometime referred to as heavy lift, it includes shipments of modules, which require disassembly for shipment and reassembly after delivery. It is a highly specialised industry with purpose built vessels and barges operating in all parts of the world.

Apart from the practical considerations and the important voyage planning that arise in relation to heavy lift cargoes, there are also some very specific and distinct contractual needs in this trade. To assist those entering into charter parties for heavy lift cargoes and identifying suitable terms to govern their contracts of carriage, BIMCO has produced a range of documents, which today spans the entire industry, including:

  • SUPPLYTIME
  • HEAVYCON 2007/HEAVYLIFTVOY
  • TOWCON 2008/TOWHIRE 2008
  • PROJECTCON
  • BARGEHIRE 2008

Often a project will involve using several of the contracts in combination. The seminar on offshore, project and heavylift will provide the participants with a comprehensive overview of the commercial and contractual issues for the entire industry. The seminar covers:

  • overview of the most commonly used contracts in the offshore and heavy lift sector
  • principles of English contract law and their relevance to the contracts
  • dealing with disputes
  • introduction to SUPPLYTIME – key features of the contract
  • knock-for-knock and general issues of insurance
  • heavylift project cargo charters - HEAVYLIFTVOY/HEAVYCON and PROJECTCON
  • drafting specialist clauses – a practical guide
  • towage contracts – a practical guide
  • general discussion on negotiating and operating charter parties
  • case studies on SUPPLYTIME, HEAVYLIFTVOY and HEAVYCON.
