This manual offers guidelines for double hull oil tankers constructed primarily for the carriage of oil in bulk. It includes a review of survey preparation guidelines which cover safety elements and the preparations required before surveys can be carried out. The book highlights what to look for, possible causes and recommends viable repair methods.
The purpose of this Guide is to assist staff and operators serving on board oil, chemical and gas tankers to prepare for a vessel's SIRE 2.0 ship inspection by providing a greater understanding of the requirements of the SIRE 2.0 questionnaire.
