Intercargo chastises shipper in Bulk Jupiter wreck

The inquiry into the Bulk Jupiter wreck sets a whole new standard, notes Intercargo, and the organization calls for cooperation from all involved parties when accidents do occur, which does not seem to have been the case with the shipping and charterer of Bulk Jupiter.

Everyone must contribute information that could help shed light on accidents at sea, and as such, dry bulk organization Intercargo reprimands Asia-based Winning Shipping, the shipper and charterer of dry bulk vessel Bulk Jupiter which wrecked shortly after new year. The dry bulk carriers' interest group held a meeting in Athens this week.

In this regard, the organization states that the accident report concerning the Bulk Jupiter incident sets a high industry standard. It usually takes an average of 20 months for a flag state to complete an accident report following a shipwreck, if a report is in fact prepared. Of 69 incidents in the past ten years, only 24 only accident reports have been submitted to the IMO, writes Intercargo.
