Liquefaction Workshop

30 specialists across the maritime sector, representing insurers, ship owners, mining companies, regulators, classification societies, trade associations, lawyers, technology and engineering consultants, convened for a one-day workshop on 30 January to share expertise and discuss risk and control of solid bulk cargo liquefaction. The workshop was held in the magnificent Fenchurch Street Lloyd’s Register Building, hosted by the Southampton Marine & Maritime Institute.

The workshop was the culmination of a year-long programme of engagement across the sector to seek out strategic and tactical solutions to reduce vessel and life-loss due to solid bulk cargo liquefaction. A key outcome of the day was a proposed programme of work for a multi-disciplinary cross-sector joint industry project that could lead to real impact in the industry. The workshop was funded through a SMMI Higher Education Innovation fund grant (HEIF) - Improving understanding of the technical, policy, economic and cultural landscape of vessel loss due to solid bulk cargo liquefaction, awarded to Susan Gourvenec from the School of Engineering, Emily Reid of the Southampton Law School and Gareth Giles of Public Policy Southampton.
