ICHCA Radar: Fire! A guide to the causes and prevention of cargo fires – published by the Swedish Club
We find or are sent a wide range of industry related learning and informative content that is not necessarily part of an immediate project but which we think will be of interest to members. Where these appear on our radar, we will share a summary of points of interest and provide links for members to find out more.
In this ICHCA Radar we spotlight a report published by the Swedish Club which addresses vessel fire statistics, self-heating principles and other causes of fires and explosions. The guide considers specific self-heating cargos and controls including material and case studies on: bulk coal, bulk direct reduced iron, charcoal, metal powder and turnings, seed cake, reactive solids, biomass, fertilisers, batteries and reactive liquids
