Loss Prevention – Laid-up Vessel Reactivation Guide

(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) When a vessel has been laid-up the circumstances of the lay-up can be many and varied, depending on numerous factors including the type of vessel, it’s age and condition, as well as the degree of lay-up, duration and location.

When a vessel is reactivated from lay-up it is essential that careful attention is paid to all the various factors surrounding the lay-up of the individual vessel, so that it can be safely returned to service, thus ensuring a low likelihood of incidents and claims involving the vessel.

In order to assist Shipowners and Shipmanagers in considering all of the factors which need to be addressed when reactivating a laid-up vessel, the West of England P&I Club has published a Laid-up Vessel Reactivation Guide.

The publication contains general notes concerning the areas of a vessel which need to be addressed when undergoing reactivation, as well as a checklist detailing the technical and operational areas which should be inspected and actioned as may be necessary, as part of the process of bringing the vessel to a state of operational readiness.
