How to Recover from a Blackout Situation

How to Recover from a Blackout Situation

Despite modern automation, there are still circumstances that can bring about a sudden and complete loss of electrical power. Crew MUST be prepared to deal quickly with this situation, and restore power. 

Blackout is when complete failure of electrical power brings the ship to a standstill. If the crew is not prepared to act quickly and efficiently, the consequences can be fatal. 

In most cases loss of electrical power also leads to a loss of propulsion which can cause contact, collision or grounding. The further consequences of this can be injuries or fatalities, pollution, or disruption to cargo schedules. 

As a result, there can be substantial claims and further costs. These can be anything from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

With a fully prepared crew, it is more likely that the consequences will be greatly reduced.

 

To help companies prepare for a quick and successful response to a blackout, Seagull Maritime offers effective training specifically on this topic.
