15 YEARS EXPERIENCE
More Than 65% Of All Ships Are Operating With Systems Containing Asbestos
Despite the introduction ten years ago of regulations prohibiting the use of asbest. materials onboard ship, a significant number of existing and newbuild vessels continue to operate systems and machinery containing the hazardous substance.
According to maritime testing facility Maritec, which carried out asbestos surveys for IMO compliance between 2011 and 2020, more than 55% of in-service vessels and 50% of all newbuilds were found to contain harmful substances.
Ship survey data indicates that most detection occurs in the following areas:
- insulation and sealing materials in machinery spaces;
- sealing materials used in construction (e.g. gaskets and doorway/window sealants);
- electric and electronic components (e.g. cables and fuses); and
- insulation materials used in construction (e.g. deck coverings deckheads and bulkheads).
