The London P&I Club, in a joint project with leading classification society Bureau Veritas and its casualty and salvage subsidiary TMC Marine, has issued a new booklet providing operational guidance for preventing blackout and main engine failures.

This new publication, the second in a series on loss prevention subjects, focuses on marine engineering issues and procedures related to the prevention of loss of propulsion. Its purpose is to provide general guidance and practical advice to marine engineers and ship owners on blackout and main engine failures, the risks associated with loss of propulsion, and the precautions that can be taken to limit and prevent them.

London P&I Club loss prevention manager Carl Durow says, “The club has seen an increase in the number of machinery failure-related cases in recent years. In most cases, it is the timing and location of the incident which dictates the severity of the claim. This publication is aimed at raising awareness of the necessary good practices and post-incident investigation activities which in combination can result in significantly reducing the risk of major claims.”

l The London P&I Club is one of the world’s leading mutual marine liability insurers. It is a prominent member of the International Group of P&I Clubs, playing a key role in co-ordinating and promoting the collective strength of the P&I industry on behalf of the global shipowning community. www.londonpandi.com
