18 Salvage and Towage 18.1 Objective


The objective of this Chapter is to cover the Salvage and Towage of a MASS vessel. The vessel in this context is taken as the structure, equipment and systems (including software) which constitute the waterborne elements of the MASS.


18.2 General


18.2.1 As MASS capability becomes more prolific at sea and also as they grow in size and complexity they will be subject to the same risks as their manned counterparts. The outcome of these risks may require the MASS to be subject to either Salvage or Towage. It is assessed that the existing body of law is, in principle, fit for purpose when applied to MASS.


18.3 MASS Salvage


18.3.1 Existing maritime salvage law as it applies to manned ships is deemed to apply to MASS. MASS owners will also make use of the existing standard salvage contracts, such as the Lloyds Open Form (LOF).


18.4 MASS Towage


18.4.1 Existing maritime towage law as it applies to manned ships is deemed to apply to MASS. MASS owners will also make use of the existing standard towage contracts such as the UK Standard Towing Conditions.


18.4.2 MASS owners will ensure that all the requisite documentation for towing their MASS platform is in place and up-to-date; e.g. towing plans.


Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships up to and including 24 metres in length
