This compact but very informative booklet was prepared and released by the Standard Club to address some issues related to the liquefaction of the bulk cargo transported on board marine vessels. the content of the publication covers nickel ore and iron ore fines. The booklet is focusing on the subject highlighted by numerous sinkings of the bulk carrier ships, i.e. cargo liquefaction.
The volume has a main emphasis on the iron ore fines carried from India as well as on the nickel ores from the Philippines and Indonesia; however it shall be noted that the advise provided in the pages off this small booklet will be equally applicable to the other cargoes commonly susceptible to liquefaction. Liquefaction actually affects bulk carrier ships of all designs and sizes but it can also affect vessels transporting bulk ores, and this would include dry general cargo vessels loading bulk cargo in parcels.
The liquefaction of cargo has been treated as a very serious concern for the seafarers for more than a century and that is why it is quite shocking to find this appearing and causing losses of human lives. Apart from the general information this document covers three real life case studies illustrating the material, test procedures, and other aspects.
