Inspection Repair and Maintenance of Ship Structures 2nd Edition
This book is aimed at people involved in the repair, maintenance and classification of ocean-going merchant ships.
Anchoring Systems and Procedures
This publication, which supersedes the 1st edition of ‘Anchoring Systems and Procedures for Large Tankers’, published in 1982, has been prepared by OCIMF to provide recommendations and guidance with the aim of promoting the safe operation and satisfactory performance of anchoring systems
Practical Marine Electrical Knowledge 3rd Ed
Intended for marine and electrical engineers, Practical Marine Electrical Knowledge provides up-to-date information on ships’ electrical systems to support the knowledge requirements of STCW at the management and operational levels, and will improve familiarity with electrical systems on board ships.
Marine Bulk Cargo Measurement Surveys
This book covering the marine bulk cargo measurement (MBCM) survey (also known as a ‘draught survey’) is for both marine surveyors and ships’ officers. It is also a source of ‘theory into practice’ applications for naval architects.
Marine Fuels and Emissions
This book examines the link between the fuels ships use and the emissions they produce. It discusses efficient energy management and technological solutions available to reduce fuel emissions.
This book relates specifically to fuel use in the marine sector in the age of climate change. It is a valuable source of detailed information on:
fuel standards and fuel types (eg fossil fuels, reduced sulphur fuels, and alternative fuels such LNG, biofuels, hydrogen, electricity, wind and solar power),
engine and abatement technology,
regions of emission control,
An important feature of the book is the inclusion of data sheets for a selection of abatement technology systems for SOx and NOx, and for engines with LNG capability.
Regulatory Primer for 2nd and Chief Engineers Covering Current & New Regulations Issue 04, September 2013
Do you know what are the bunkering requirements from 1st January 2014?, or how the use of low sulphur fuels are being monitored in the EU? What is required at the ships next dry-docking or what cannot be extended beyond 25 years after the ships delivery date? All these questions and more are covered in this new pocket book to bring you right up-to-date with what is happening and required in the world of shipping today.
Regulatory Primer for Mates & Masters Covering Current & New Regulations Issue 04, September 2013
Do you know what has came in to force on the 1st July 2013?, or what new requirements are effective from 1st January 2014 for STS operations or ships carrying solid bulk cargoes for example? What is required at the ships next dry-docking or what cannot be extended beyond 25 years after the ships delivery date? All these questions and more are covered in this new pocket book to bring you right up-to-date with what is happening and required in the world of shipping today.
Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels (ERRVs)
The importance of the emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV) within the marine industry is often overlooked. This may be due to the fact that the role of the ERRV can appear to be limited to standby duties and emergency situations. However, the ERRV is a vessel that is actually utilised for many and varied tasks associated both with work onboard the installation to which it is assigned and within the general offshore environment. An ERRV may be required to perform routine standby duties during over side work from the installation or during helicopter landing and take-off operations, to perform in-field transfers or be assigned collision avoidance duties.
All of these tasks require specific skills, training and levels of competence unique to the vessel type. Training, drills and exercises are, therefore, a major part of life onboard an ERRV, and the roles onboard demand a level of competence that is routinely and continually tested and assessed.
