Riyadh MOU Launches Fire Safety Inspection Campaign

SOLAS update - September 16, 2014



The Riyadh MOU (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE) will launch a concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on fire safety systems from 1 October 2014 to 31 December 2014.

The purpose of the CIC is to ensure:

  • compliance with the requirements of SOLAS convention chapter II-2 and the International Code for Fire Safety Systems
  • firefighting equipment is properly maintained and readily available at all times
  • the master officers and crew are familiar with the equipment and have received training in carrying out their duties
  • awareness of fire safety related issues.

During regular port state inspections the fire safety plan, fire control measures, drills, crew awareness and applicable documentation will be verified in more detail for compliance with SOLAS Chapter II-2 and the International Code for Fire Safety Systems.

If a deficiency is found, the actions of the Port State may vary from recording a deficiency and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period to detention of the ship until the deficiency has been rectified. Any detentions will be recorded in the monthly detention lists of the Riyadh MOU.

The results of the campaign will be analyzed and the findings will be presented to the governing body of the Riyadh MOU for submission to the relevant IMO sub-committees.

Coltraco Ultrasonics is pleased to see that fire safety is taking a more important role around the world. We fully support those who wish to increase the safety parameters in order to save lives and reduced risks to infrastructure and cargo. We are pleased that our Portamarine® liquid level indicator complies with the SOLAS IMO FSS Chapter 5 which states that vessels should have a means to test the onboard fire suppression systems; Portamarine® enables you to check if the cylinders have leaked to ensure that they are ready to action in the event of a fire.

Integrity and Science Key to Our Culture of Performance

Dear Coltraco Customers, Strategic Partners and Distributors,

Integrity is our defining value. Performance is its consequence. We understand that our customers have choices, and how we perform determines whether customers choose us. Coltraco’s Code of Ethics does not merely require compliance with laws. It embodies a Commitment to positive behaviours that build trust, promote respect, operate with distinction, with courtesy and global levels of performance, demonstrating our integrity and delivering customer performance.

We honour our commitments, communicate transparently, and act with honour. Ethics are the foundation of our performance culture and our science-based approach. We lead in specific technologies delivering the watertight integrity monitoring of marine structures and the monitoring of fixed liquefied gaseous fire extinguishing systems and the room integrity of protected space to ensure agent hold-times post-installation. We show this by our understanding of the science in them and the mathematics that explain them.

I would like to thank you for your business and for the relationships with our Customers, Strategic Partners, Distributors and ODAs who we value so highly.
