Jiujiang MSA: heat alert for DG vessels

17 July 2013
Jiujiang Maritime Safety Authorities issued a heat alert to all vessels and terminals handling dangerous goods amid the scorching July temperature. MSA officials visited a key manufacturer, a fuel station, a petrol terminal and a DG freight forwarder and focused their attention on a number of issues including fire equipment, emergency rescue procedures, and ship-to-shore duty procedures. They urged all operators to take measures to reduce the temperature in places where materials are stored and handled, and to keep their automated Identification systems on at all times.

On 14 July, MSA officials managed to put out a fire in Wuxue Shipyard caused by an ageing valve in the power switch. Five tons of diesel were being stored nearby.
