Busy in the Green Room

The last quarter has seen IUMI continue to record highly interesting and relevant podcasts. At the end of 2021, our President Richard Turner recorded a very special podcast looking at the highlights of 2021. Richard discussed the ongoing pandemic, the challenges marine insurers are currently facing as well as IUMI’s focus for 2022.

We kicked off 2022 with a podcast looking at piracy in the Gulf of Guinea. Our guest, Neil Roberts, Head of Marine Underwriting at the LMA and member of IUMI’s Policy Forum, drew on his years of experience to discuss the current challenges with piracy in the area, the measures to help alleviate the problem and a look to the future.

Finally, our last podcast of this quarter was more technical and investigated engine room fires. Svenn Andersen, Senior Surveyor at the Norwegian Hull Club, joined us to talk about the difficulties and challenges with engine room fires. Engine room fires are one of the most common fires onboard ships and dealing with them and preventing them are key to safety at sea. During this highly informative podcast Svenn highlighted the causes of these fires, preventative measures that can be taken and industry guidelines to follow to mitigate the risk.
