Intercargo – Reported bulk carrier casualties from 2010 to 2019

(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The INTERCARGO Bulk Carrier Casualty Report 2019 provides an analysis of casualty statistics covering the years 2010 to 2019. Thirty-nine bulk carriers with 173 seafarers were reported lost over that period, based on available reports of total losses and constructive total losses from public sources and IMO’s GISIS.

Cargo shift and/or liquefaction is one of the greatest concerns for the safe carriage of dry bulk over the past 10 years, likely to be the main reason causing 8 bulk carrier casualties and 106 seafarers losing their lives.

Lessons learned from past incidents play an important role in determining where additional safety improvement is necessary. At the end of January 2020, 24 of the 39 bulk carrier losses in this analysis have had investigation reports made available on IMO GISIS, representing 61.5% of the total. The average time from an incident to a report becoming available has been 32 months for these investigations.
