Engine Room Fixed Foam System Checks - MAIB Alert

The UK's Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) periodically issues warnings and advice sheets to ship owners to highlight onboard safety considerations. An urgent warning was issued recently for fixed foam flooding system malfunctions that MAIB had found on a Ro-Ro ferry after a fire broke out and no foam was produced to extinguish it.

This bulletin is a recap of the MAIB warning, intended to warn our clients of the dangers, in the event that they were not aware of or had not received the original warning.
