Solid Bulk Cargo Liquefaction: Strategies for Effective Control

 In Articles

Solis Marine is one of more than 20 partners working as a consortium with the University of Southampton and Lloyd’s Register Foundation on a three year project to reduce loss of life from solid bulk cargo liquefaction.

A distinctive characteristic of this project is the extent of cross-sector engagement, spanning mining companies, ship owners, trade associations, insurers, a class society, lawyers, consultants, testing houses, a regulator, NGOs, and academics from UK and international institutions with a range of discipline expertise across the physical and social sciences and law.

Safety of seafarers is central to the objectives of the project and programme of work, and the activities have been developed to ensure real impact is achieved for the industry as the project brochure explains.

Solis Marine is providing active contribution to identify the key factors and their role in determining the risk of solid bulk cargo liquefaction and to develop practical technical, regulatory, educational and communication tools to mitigate risk and reduce loss of life.

Leading the project on behalf of Solis Marine is Riccardo Gnocchi.
