Maritime Casualty Investigations Seminar has been held in Piraeus, Greece
International Registries, Inc. (IRI) hosted a prestigious panel discussion at the Piraeus Marine Club in Piraeus, with nearly 200 attendees hearing presentations on marine casualty investigations.
Moderator Rear Admiral (RADM) Kevin Cook and his panelists, Andrew D. Bowen, Sean Payne, Andy Sherrell, and Captain Morgan J. Turrell, emphasized that the primary function of investigations is to determine the cause of very serious marine casualties and prevent them from occurring again. Such investigations are not intended to apportion blame or determine liability.
IRI’s Brian Poskaitis, Senior Vice President, Fleet Operations and Nick Makar, Senior Vice President, Maritime Administration/Regulatory Affairs, also presented updates on PSC and the IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Fuel. As is always the case with so many dedicated maritime professionals, an informative question-and-answer discussion followed the presentations.
The Piraeus seminar was widely attended by the Greek shipping community, with some audience members spilling over into additional rooms at the Piraeus Marine Club.
