​‘Kiunga Chief’ deficiencies addressed: Consort

Responding to questions from Loop PNG on actions taken following the ban announced by the Australia Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), Consort General Manager, Stuart Craker, said all deficiencies have been addressed as and when they arise.

However, he did say that the company is working on improving its safety management system, which AMSA identified as needed improvement.

“There are no known deficiencies on board. As with any large vessels, technical issues arise regularly and are dealt with by the crew and the shore team.
