London Arbitration 17/14

NYPE -- TIME CHARTER -- PERFORMANCE SUSPENDED FOR UNPAID HIRE -- WHETHER OWNER REQUIRED TO SERVE ANTI-TECHNICALITY NOTICE -- WHETHER OWNER ENTITLED TO EXERCISE LIEN ON CARGO -- Owner Award This dispute arose under a trip charter from U.S. to China, where Owner suspended performance of contract due to outstanding hire, resulting in delays to discharge and additional hire until the redelivery date as Owner ordered the vessel to anchorage to wait. Charterer refused to pay the additional hire claiming that the vessel was off-hire during time spent at anchorage and Owner was liable for damages by depriving Charterer of service.
