Marine safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Baltimar A/S, Denmark
|Date issued:||25 June 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The maintenance of the generator flexible fuel hoses was inadequate. Inappropriate temporary repairs had been made and hoses longer than specified by the generator manufacturer had been used in the past. As a result, some hoses were in poor condition due to wear and this had not been noted during previous surveys, audits and inspections.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Baltimar A/S take action to address this safety issue.
