What are common cause of damage of solid bulk cargo on ships?

  1. Water ingress usually results from 3 sources:
    • Leaking hatch covers
    • Back-flow through bilge systems
    • Ballast tanks, including impact damage on structures, leaking manhole lids and in-adequate monitoring.
  2. Additional water sources:
    • Moisture from loading cargo that is wet or comes with a high moisture content
    • Condensation or “sweating” that can come from a lack of ventilation or incorrect ventilation.
Note:

Effective measures should be taken to monitor and test these particular areas of concern and defects must be identified and rectified as soon as possible.
