Hydrographic concerns for modern-day large vessels

Marsh calls for a higher priority to be given to hydrographic survey work to protect mega-ships at sea – Marsh, a global leader in marine insurance broking and risk management, has issued an industry information report that highlights the inherent risks involved in operating ever-larger ships in poorly surveyed waters: Plumbing the depths: Hydrographic Concerns for Modern-Day Large Vessels. With the Suez Canal axis now open and the expanded Panama Canal system soon to be complete, more and more huge ships will be navigating parts of the world that have never seen so many large vessels before.

In this new research and briefing report Marsh takes a look at the lack of adequately hydrographically surveyed waters internationally and the implications this could have for these new vessels.
