Government Shuts Down DSME After Accident

Thu Nov 12 10:08:55 CET 2015 arnekiel

The South Korean government has ordered Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to stop work on five of its ships under construction, following a fire earlier this week that killed one person and injured seven others. The measure takes effect immediately, and will be kept in place until work safety is guaranteed on the ship that caught on fire on Tuesday and four tankers, the Ministry of Employment and Labor said. This week’s fire broke out inside an LPG tanker possible as a result of a spark from a welder’s torch inside one of the tanks on the 85,000-ton tanker. In August this year, two workers died and seven were injured in another fire at the yard. The fire reportedly started while the workers were welding inside a hull of an LPG carrier. The ministry ordered eight days of work stoppage period at that time, but the punishment will be aggravated this time, Yonhap news reports an official as saying. http://maritime-executive.com/article/government-shuts-down-dsme-after-accident

Wed Aug 26 09:02:31 CEST 2015 Timsen

The fire at the Daewoo Shipbuilding Yardon Aug 24, 2015, damaged sufficiently two tankers, but the value of the loses was to be estimated at later stage. The local authorities started investigating the accident and checkinh the safety rules and procedures in the shipyard. The ships under construction were with length of 226.00 m, beam of 36.60 m and deadweight of 86,000 DWT. The vessels were with estimated delivery date in second half of 2016 with total value of the project 1.44 billion USD. The accident in Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s yard definitely will burden the bad financial situation of the South Korean shipbuilding industry. Two dockworkers died and seven others were injured after large fire erupted in Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s yard in Okpo, South Korea. The situation was classified as serious according to the local authorities and forced evacuation of all workers and engaged several shore firefighting brigades. The accident happened during welder working at VLGC under construction, which caused explosion of gases in the inner compartment and fire in the vessel. The fire spread rapidly to the whole dock and even caught another VLGC under construction, sending huge flames and smoke in the air. The local fire department spent most of the day tackling the blaze and after almost 24 hours succeeded to get control of the fire.
