Grimaldi Group Calls for Tighter Cargo Controls After Fires

Tue May 21 08:32:03 CEST 2019 arnekiel

Italian shipping company Grimaldi Group has issued a statement addressing this week’s fire on board the Grimaldi Lines vehicle carrier Grande Europa in the Mediterranean, calling for more stringent controls and regulations following a spate of recent incidents in which cargo caught fire. The fire on board the roll-on/roll-off vehicle carrier Grande Europa started on May 15 as the vessel was underway approximately 25 miles from Palma de Mallorca. The fire resulted in the evacuation of 15 of the 25 crew members on board with no reported injuries. The fire was subsequently put out and the vessel towed to Palma. Grimaldi reported that the vessel was loaded with 1,687 mostly new vehicles, such as cars, vans, trucks and excavators, and 49 containers containing mainly food products. In addressing the incident, the group said that preliminary investigations have shown there were actually two seperate fires, both of which broke out in vehicles stowed on board: “The alarm was given by the crew at 00:45 a.m., due to a fire broken out on deck 3, which was completely extinguished by the crew itself after about 45 minutes. At 04:00 a.m., a second fire was located on deck 8, which spread to deck 9; also here, the crew promptly intervened with the firefighting equipment on board,” the statement said.

Mon May 20 13:47:22 CEST 2019 Timsen

The "Grande Europa" left Palma de Mallorca on May 20 at 6 p.m., bound to Valencia. The Maritime Captaincy had received the towing plan of the company contracted by Grimaldi in the run of the day. The ship was to be taken to Valencia by the tug "V.B. Supernacho" (IMO: 9289269) within 1,5 days with a speed of 3,5 knots. Inspectors had been monitoring the preparitions throughout the weeken. In the morning of May 20 the Maritime Captaincy has received the certificate from the Security Agency as they have successfully completed the works of extinction in the ship.

Vehicles carrier berthed in Palma

Thu May 16 09:25:06 CEST 2019 Timsen

On May 16 at 5 a.m. the "Grande Europa" was berthed at the Muelles Commerciales Ro-Ro Terminal in Palma. The ship was towed by the "Marta Mata" into the commercial port in favourable weather conditions after it could be ruled out that there was an imminent risk of sinking nor did the ship suffer structural damage, did not leak and remained watertight. No more smoke was detected and the thermal images showed a drop in the temperature of the hull before. Grimaldi has hired the company Ardent for the tasks of fire control and emergency response. A team of experts, including divers, firemen, and other specialists in maritime emergencies, was to embark on the ship during the day. The anti pollution vessel Clara Campoamor arrived around 7.20 a.m. at the eastern Multipurpose Terminal of the port. The action plan consisted of an evaluation and verifying deck by deck and track possible locations of a fire source. In the case of any fire active, it would be extinguished. The ship transported a total of 1,687 vehicles, cars, vans and excavators, most of them new, and 49 containers containing mainly food products. The initial alarm was given by the crew at 12:45 a.m., after a fire broke out on deck 3, which was finally put out by the crew within 45 minutes. But it caused a second fire on deck 8, which extended to deck 9 soon after. Both fires broke out in new cars.
