Team Tankers AS v. Tricon Shipping Ltd. (The “Siteam Merkur”) – SMA No. 4086, 16 Aug 2010

ASBATANKVOY -- UNSEAWORTHINESS -- FREIGHT DIFFERENTIAL -- MITIGATION COSTS -- EXTRA INSPECTION COSTS -- Charterer Award An extension of SMA 4016, the central issue to be decided is whether the cargo was adequately described in the charter and whether Charterer is obliged to notify Owner as to the cargo's sensitivity to iron thereby requiring tank coatings to be intact. This Award affirms that the Q88 should reference the Vessel’s current condition as opposed to the "as built" condition and that there is a breach of the Charter Party should the Vessel’s tanks not conform with the Q88.
