Ocean Pride Maritime Ltd. Partnership v. Quingdao Ocean Shipping Co. (The “Northgate”) – QBD (Comm. Ct.), 27 Nov 07

NOR -- TENDERED FROM OUTER ANCHORAGE -- NOR ACCEPTED UNCONDITIONALLY BY THIRD PARTY TERMINAL -- DEMURRAGE -- Owner Award The Vessel tendered her NOR to the Charterer’s agents and the Terminal from the outer anchorage within the given laycan. However, a congested berth forced her to wait at the outer anchorage for ten days, which was subsequently claimed as demurrage by the Owners. The Charterer rejected this demurrage claim and stated that because the Vessel was at the outer anchorage upon tender, the NOR was invalid. Conversely, the Owner pointed out that the Terminal unconditionally accepted their NOR.
