Hold cleanliness inspection

Before loading cargo holds must be examined for potential defects such as rust scale, insect infestation, oil sludge and water. Vessel’s cargo compartments must be substantially clean, dry, and ready to receive certain cargo before the loading can begin. Practically all charter parties have provisions for vessel inspection before/during loading. After hold cleanliness is approved by our surveyor cleanliness certificate is issued.
