Safety Issue

The design of Baltimar Boreas's diesel generator fuel system with respect to the length and arrangement of its flexible fuel hoses was not in accordance with International Maritime Organization guidelines. A number of the hoses were not as short as practicable and their use was not limited to only those positions or locations where it was necessary to accommodate relative movement between engine components.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Lloyd's Register take action to address this safety issue.
