GL Releases Guide for Ship Lay-Ups

Tuesday, Dec 23, 2008

Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has developed a guide outlining major methods and procedures involved in ship lay-ups.

On request, Germanischer Lloyd will also carry out surveys serving purposes such as consultation and cooperation in applying the necessary measures”, explains Carsten Beese, Head of Competence Centre Fleet Service Management at Germanischer Lloyd. “The most important question the owner has to clear is: How long will the vessel be laid up?
