ASBATANKVOY -- ARBITRATION -- DEMURRAGE -- SHIFTING -- BUNKERS -- SLOW STEAMING -- Owner Award This arbitration resulted from the Charterer’s failure to pay an outstanding demurrage claim and an invoice for shifting expenses, and failed to reimburse the Owner for under-consumed bunkers from slow steaming.
ASBATANKVOY -- LOADPORT -- VOYAGE -- CARGO -- CHARTER PARTY -- DEMURRAGE -- DEVIATION -- Owner Award Once at loadport, the surveyor inspected the Vessel’s tanks and rejected them per latex residue from the previous voyage’s cargo. But even after cleaning and re-tendering NOR, latex residue was still found in surveyor samples. So, the Owners ordered the Vessel to fulfill other charters, and later submitted a claim for demurrage and subsequent deviation costs.
EXXONVOY 90 -- ARBITRATION -- DEMURRAGE -- TIME-BAR -- CHARTER PARTY -- Charterer Award In this case, the Owner began arbitration to recover a demurrage claim that was allegedly time-barred. The charter party stipulates that a notice must be submitted within ninety days of discharge completion, followed by all supporting evidence within 150 days of discharge. The notice and full claim were received on the ninety-first day, which the Owners contend satisfies the charter.
