About the Solution

Ship operators may find that they are unable to employ their vessels profitably and take the decision to remove it from service.

It may be that the owner has a reasonable expectation that demand will quickly recover, so will merely find a suitable location and keep the vessel fully functioning and ready for employment, with her crew aboard. Additionally the owner might view the market less optimistically and decide to take the vessel out of service for a period of months, or even years, until demand is restored.

These periods are called “Lay Up” periods and there are series of action and requirements for Ship owners to implement in order to comply with relevant legislation and requirements.
