Keith Harper, Master Mariner Solicitor Consultant at Tatham & Co, chaired the Management and Prevention of Containership Fires seminar which took place on 6th December in London. This seminar was part of the 22nd Salvage and Wreck Conference. 

 2019 saw an unprecedented number of container fires incidents. On average a fire broke out every week, with a major container fire occurring every 60 days. The seminar discussed the reasons as to why containership fires have become so frequent and looked at preventative measures in order to reduce the risk.
