maersk-honam-3-550x367.jpgThe Danish shipping major selected ABS to lead a comprehensive Hazard Identification (HAZID) study in the aftermath of the Maersk Honam fireon March 6, 2018.

The workshop, which was launched in an effort to identify and evaluate potential hazards from dangerous cargoes stowage, identified hazards on a range of containership designs, many which are not fully addressed by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.

The outcome will include recommendations to improve stowage planning and hazard mitigation, leading to better management of risks, according to ABS.

“We are encouraged by the outcome of this workshop which will lead to further safety improvements to be considered for the IMDG Code. With ABS and other leading international partners, we will now work to implement the recommendations we have identified,” Ole Graa Jakobsen, Maersk Line Head of Fleet Technology, said.

Five crew members were lost in the devastating fire aboard Maersk Honam and, as salvage operations continue, Maersk Line said that it is “determined to explore all ways to further improve safety” onboard its vessels.

Product Description

Eco hopper provides a series of square hoppers to hold a grab capacity of 1 to 37 cubic meters. Each hopper size has a SNV36202_meitu_4_副本.jpgcorresponding high or low level frame, depending on the choice of discharge equipment. Because all our standard jumpers follow the same design principles, component modules can be standardized to reduce production period.

Eco dust hopper equipped with a simple and effective dust-proof system to minimize dust flying during grab operating. Hopper is divided into inside and outside, separated by elastic rubber dust isolation device. The main function of the outer hopper is to receive cargoes from grabs.
