ILO Rules for accommodation on newbuildt vessel

ILO Rules for accommodation on newbuildt vessel

ILO Rules for accommodation on newbuildt vessel

Our brand new vessel just left the yard.

According to ILO the bathrooms should have "Towel dryers".
Our Client interprets this as the electrically heated version, while I interpret is as a Towel Rail where towels will dry without heat.

I have never seen an electrical towel dryer on a ship or rig so surely they are pulling our leg.

Can anyone clarify this, as I do not have the ILO manual and certainly do not want to install hundreds of electrical dryers if I don't need to?

I would appreciate it if you could reference to an official document from ILO that I can use or copy it in your reply.

RE: ILO Rules for accommodation on newbuildt vessel

it sounds absurd! i'd been with 1981 and 2005 built vessel but i haven't seen on-board a bathroom with towel dryers, dont't ever heard class society requires it. For 2010 built these might be a new requirements? confusing! though i don't read ILO manual.  Certainly, class society will give detailed explanation try ask representative when on-board.

Did you check ILOLEX database for the requirement?  If there is a requirement, you can be sure it does not mean a towel rack. Pain in the ass if it is there.

Add a hundered bucks per stateroom and a few hundered watts. Not that there is room for onein most heads anyway.

Unfortunately it is correct.

Electric towel rail yes. Otherwise build a case for exception which is what we did
