London Arbitration 16/15

GENCON 1976 - REDUCED DISCHARGE RATE - FORCE MAJEURE - DEMURRAGE - Owner Award During unloading, the Vessel was directed to vacate the dock and wait until the berth once again became available. After a month of waiting, she was called back in and completed her discharge. Charterer rejected the resultant demurrage claim under the auspices that the unloading rate was reduced due to the ingress of water, the berth’s inefficiency in unloading was a force majeure event, and the removal of the Vessel from the berth by the port authority was a force majeure event.
