Secure heavy lifts & project cargo

This report highlights how to safely load, stow, secure and discharge heavy lifts  & project cargo.

The publication is the result of joint industry collaboration between the Risk Management/ Marine Risk Control Departments of the UK P&I Club and Marine Cargo Insurers Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty with expert independent input from Cwaves, a London based Marine Surveying and Consultancy Company.

This collaboration came about due to increasing concerns about the lack of expertise, skills and resources being deployed in this complex area of shipping activities and a repeated number of significant damage losses to ships and cargoes combined with a series of near miss incidents in recent years.
