London Arbitration 15/10

NYPE -- TIME CHARTER -- HOLDS REJECTED UPON DELIVERY -- COST OF CLEANING -- CAUSATION OF WAITING TIME -- Part Owner Award, Part Charterer Award Upon delivery the Vessel’s holds were rejected which subsequently took 6 days for cleaning and approval, followed by 4 days spent waiting to berth. The Panel ruled that Charterer was to be reimbursed by Owner for the cost of the cleaning and that only the delay specifically related to the holds failing inspection was to be for Owner’s account. Charterer was responsible for the berth occupancy upon the Vessel’s arrival and the berth occupancy once the Vessel’s holds were approved yet another vessel was brought in.
