Resolution A.949(23) GUIDELINES ON PLACES OF REFUGE FOR SHIPS IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE
Dear Gordon and Gavin,
Latest news is that the ship has split completely with the forward part having sunk in reasonably shallow water. Salvors are holding the aft part on station but there appears to be fuel leakage so SOSREP is refusing permission to go into Skegness until this is brought under control. Salvors have invoked SCOPIC at this point. We also seem to have some questions about containers which may not have been correctly declared as the salvors are reporting some odd hissing and chemical smell.
Can you advise all insurers and obtain their comments and instructions please.
Need for all parties, in particular Svitzer, IMCC, the Environment Group and the SOSREP to be seen to be working together;
SOSREP decision making free from political interference but beneficial to be open and proactive with media, public & other parties re potential threats, mitigation measures in place and future plans;
SOSREP will request media strategy group and will address media.
SOSREP will establish a Salvage Control Unit (SCU) and will invite core members:
SOSREP + personal specialist advisor(s)
Owners/ Insurers Representative
Environment Group Liaison Officer
MCA CPSO and/or Coastguard Liaison Officer
“Clause 11-5. Request for condemnation
If the assured wishes the ship to be condemned, he must submit a request to the insurer without undue delay after the ship has been salvaged and he has had an opportunity to survey the damage. This request may be withdrawn as long as it has not been accepted by the insurer.”
25 at least!

Thanks yours. These are complex issues you will need to also talk to your club about, but in outline:-
1.The vessel is still under LOF so it is likely that ship and cargo remain in peril until all or most of the cargo comes off. In that case the cost of discharge will be GA.
2.If the voyage is frustrated because the vessel is a commercial total loss, all GA allowances stop on the date the voyage is abandoned or completion of discharge of cargo – whichever is the later.
3.After that, further storage and transhipment to destination becomes cargo’s problem – or rather their insurers under the Forwarding Charges Clause in the Institute Cargo Clauses.
Norplan Clause 12-2 says:-
“Compensation is calculated on the basis of the estimated reduction in the market value of the ship due to the damage at the time of expiry, but shall not exceed the estimated costs of repairs. Estimated common expenses are not recoverable, except for 50% of estimated dock and quay hire.”
c. About the same
a. Limitation of liability by shipowner and/or time charterer.
b. Handling of dangerous goods or “ordinary” goods that become dangerous; treatment of enhanced costs.
c. Recovery actions – where next?
