PSC Report for Q3 2015

The third quarter of 2015 the PSC MoU with the highest detention ratio (7.83%) was that of Mediterranean MoU, an increase which is mainly attributed to the increased detention ratio of general cargo ships. After the Mediterranean MoU, the Indian Ocean MoU was the second MoU with increased detention ratio (4.13%), followed by Paris MoU (3.61%) and Black Sea MoU (3.15%). In comparison to the previous quarter of the year the detention ratio of Tokyo MoU was decreased to 2.72%.

2015.10.26 - PSC Quarterly Report 2015 Q3 Figure 02

As it can be seen from the above table for the period from 01/07/2015 to 30/09/2015 a considerable increased detention ratio was identified in the Mediterranean PSC MoU area where 920 inspections led to the detention of 72 vessels which corresponds to a detention ration of 7.83. This result is mainly attributed to the high detention ratio of General Cargo Ships.

In general the vessel type of General Cargo Ships is the type that had also the highest detention ration I Indian Ocean MoU, Mediterranean MoU and Paris MoU.

Apart from General Cargo Ships, the other type of vessel that displayed an increased detention ration where the Containerships inspected in the Indian Ocean MoU area.

Finally it is worth noting that, for all five (5) types of vessels under the scope of this report, the highest deficiency ration was observed in the Black Sea MoU area, while the lowest detention/deficiency ratio was recorded in Abuja MoU and Paris MoU.
