The UK P&I Club is to host the fourth in a series of live training webinars aimed at both Members and the wider maritime industry, this time looking at catastrophic machinery failure.

Taking place on Thursday 2nd July at 9am BST (4pm Singapore), the webinar will provide expert insight and analysis on the three pillars of machinery management - monitoring, maintenance and continuous learning. According to the Club, each year, a number of large P&I claims are directly related to machinery operations. Various factors contribute to this, including improper training, quality of hardware, poor housekeeping, and ineffective communication.

  • The webinar will examine, through use of case studies and interactive participation:
  • the role of technical managers
  • development of new technology and associated crew training
  • the challenges faced by engineers onboard ship
  • how mechanical failures have led to large shipping casualties
  • the importance of learning lessons

The webinar will be moderated by Ansuman Ghosh, Director Risk Assessment, UK P&I Club, and feature Satya Prakash, Deputy General Manager (Technical), Laurel Ship Management, and John Gibson, Director of Asia, Marine Engineer, Brookes Bell.

Stuart Edmonston, Loss Prevention Director, UK P&I Club, said: “Adapting to an environment where Covid-19 restrictions mean many events have been postponed or cancelled, our training webinars have helped marine professionals stay up to date and informed on evolving industry issues. We’re committed to providing opportunities to deepen collaborative knowledge and look forward to an insightful and thought provoking session exploring the critical issue of machinery failures.”
