Sulphur cargoes / sulfur vessel, a reminder on good practice on board bulk carriers

Major problems on board a bulk carrier have again highlighted problems encountered when carrying bulk sulphur cargoes. Relatively minor lapses or omissions in a vessel’s preparation to carry cargo can lead to major insurance claims. The following points and procedures are among those that must be followed if cargo claims and/or hull and machinery claims are to be avoided:

  • all residues from previous cargoes must be removed.
  • all loose paint, rust and/or scale must be removed.
  • all traces of chlorides must be removed, especially those remaining after washing cargo holds with seawater.
  • Cargo holds must be thoroughly fresh water washed and bilges drained.
  • The cargo holds should be ‘grain clear’ prior to loading (i.e. equivalent cleanliness requirements as for grain cargoes).
  • Holds must be inspected and approved and hatches must be watertight.
