Marine Insurers Cancel ‘Spoofing’ Iran-Linked Ships

Lloyd's List

United Against Nuclear Iran has detailed to three marine insurance providers how vessels they cover are using two transponders to obfuscate their location while they load Iranian fuel oil, liquefied petroleum gas, gasoil, crude, and condensate. The New York-based non-government organisation has written to the protection and indemnity providers between December 2020 and August 2021 about 11 tankers involved in deceptive practices. “Some vessels are carrying two Automatic Identification System transponders on board,” UANI wrote in letters to West of England P&I, American Club and Skuld.
