In this ICHCA Radar we spotlight a report published by The German Federal Bureau of Maritime Casualty Investigation into the serious marine casualty caused by a chemical reaction within a fertiliser load onboard the vessel Purple Beach in 2015. Thankfully there was no loss of life, injuries or pollution, however the vessel was ultimately scrapped as a result of this incident.
