    Published: November 2019

    Written by industry experts, this new publication presents a set of best practice guidelines for proper stowage and safe securing of steel cargo on board ships. Each chapter focusses on a different type of steel cargo and provides advice on bundling, dunnaging, lashing and stowage. The text is extensively illustrated with schematics and colour photographs, demonstrating best practices in action as well as dangerous practices to be avoided. The guidelines have been written in accordance with SOLAS and the Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing (CSS Code).

     

     

    The Foreword to the CSS Code highlights that:

     

    “Improper stowage and securing of cargoes has resulted in numerous serious ship casualties and caused injury and loss of life, not only at sea but also during loading and discharge.”

     

    Recognising this safety gap in the steel cargo segment, Capt Leo Vincent of Jurong Port and appointed consultant Capt Ivan Todorov of Brookes Bell developed a set of guidelines, which forms the basis of this publication. The neighbouring ports of Johor Port, Northport, Westports and Penang Port joined Jurong Port in support of the project and, after a comprehensive review of the issues faced by stevedores during the discharging of various steel cargoes, the Ports issued the ‘Best Practice Guidelines for Stowage and Securing of Steel Cargoes’.

     

    The Guidelines have been developed to assist ships’ Masters and officers, port Captains, load port agents and stevedores, charterers and shippers when planning to load steel cargoes that are bound for Malaysia or Singapore. However, they can be applied to any other ports.

     

    The Guidelines cover the following types of steel cargoes: Rebar | Wire Rod in Coils (WRIC) | Steel Plate | Pipes | Structural Steel | Hot and Cold Rolled Steel Coils | Ingots, Billets, Blooms, Slabs & Combined Stowage of Different Steel Products and are fully intended to be an international guide that can be applied to any port handling steel cargoes.
