London Arbitration 19/07

GENCON -- NOR VALIDITY -- TENDERED PRIOR TO LEGALLY BEING ABLE TO ENTER THE PORT -- LOCAL AUTHORITIES -- DEMURRAGE -- Charterer Award The Vessel arrived and tendered NOR at the Libyan discharge port despite not having received permission to discharge from the Libyan Port Authority. Four days after arrival, permission was granted. The Vessel had missed her turn at berth, and the port had closed for a period due to inclement weather. The Charterer rejected both the NOR and the subsequent demurrage claim. The award explains the consequences for the Owner for failing to re-tender NOR after receiving permission to discharge.
