ASBATANKVOY -- CARGO -- DISPORT -- CONTAMINATION -- DEMURRAGE -- LAYTIME -- HANDLING COSTS -- Owner Award Because the cargo was found to be off spec at disport, the Charterers accepted a US$100,000 settlement for the contamination.

However, the Charterers counterclaimed for excess handling costs and rejected the Owner’s invoice based on the cargo contamination and the Vessel’s inoperative radar.
