Paris MoU Detention Report for Bulk Carrier MV Sea Bridge

The ship was banned in Italy in 2002. The banning was lifted in December 2007 and the vessel was on a voyage to Port of Szczecin in Poland. After lifting the ship from banning, she was due for a Mandatory Expanded Inspection (MEI). The Mandatory Expanded PSC PMoU Inspection was carried out on 19 December 2007 on partly discharged ship in Szczecin – Poland by two of our PSC Officers. After the inspection the ship was detained having among other 27 deficiencies identified.

  • On the partly corroded deck heavily corroded and a holed hatch cover pontoons.
  • Perished, broken and holed tarpaulins used as a weather cover over hatch pontoons.

  • Windlass completely corroded with a partial damaged foundation.
  • Greased moving parts were not found at all.
  • Mooring rollers seized, corroded: were not movable or greased.
