Insurers require condition surveys for tankers carrying HFO cargo

The International Group of P&I Clubs has announced

that all sea-going vessels aged 10 years or more which have carried heavy HFO as cargo within the previous 12 months will be subject to a condition survey, unless certain conditions apply.


A survey will not be needed if the vessel has undergone a P&I club condition survey during the previous 12 months, has undergone a special survey during the previous six months or has a valid Condition Assessment Program (CAP) rating of 1 or 2 from a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).

HFO, in this context, is defined as residual fuel with a kinematic viscosity of 380 centipoises when measured at 50 degrees Celsius by the ISO 3104 test method. This excludes vessels carrying intermediate fuel oils or heavy crudes, as well as those carrying bitumen or tar.
