There are many different types of heavy lift and project cargo operations (HLPCO) carried out on a day to day basis around the world. These can range significantly in size, shape and distance to be transported. They can involve various types of equipment which require specific skills to be able to operate them effectively, efficiently and safely.
This textbook covers ship construction techniques and methods for all classes of Merchant Navy marine deck and engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as Undergraduate students studying Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.
This publication describes the various types of biofouling and the problems it can cause for ship operation and the marine environment. It examines the use of anti-fouling systems to prevent the build-up of biofouling as well as the options available for ship cleaning. It also sets out biofouling legislation and guidelines. The book includes data sheets for a number of hull cleaning companies worldwide.
This book is intended to be a reference guide for those engineers dealing with the design and operation of ship electric energy systems. Modern ships tend to be more and more electrified, hence their electric energy system is of utmost importance, especially considering its predominant role in total efficiency, emissions, and fuel consumption.
This second volume in the Collecting Maritime Evidence series focuses on electronic evidence – what it is, how to preserve and collect it, and how it can be used to understand the circumstances that led to a maritime incident.
