This highly practical guide, Published: with the support of INTERCARGO and RightShip, draws on the expertise of more than 20 contributing experts representing a wide range of disciplines involved with the dry bulk trades. The book takes the reader through the essentials at each stage of the voyage, from preparation and loading, to care of the cargo and ship at sea, and finally arrival and discharge.
This fully illustrated 500-page reference book covers every aspect of the safe handling of bulk liquid gases (LNG, LPG and chemical gases) on board ships and at the ship/shore interface at terminals. It is indispensable for personnel training for operational qualifications as well as those already engaged in liquefied gas operations.
Bulk carriers must be handled with care in port as well as at sea. Stevedores and ships' officers responsible for cargo operations become key partners for ship safety, because the lives of seafarers may ultimately depend on careful cargo handling. Ship-to-shore planning, information and communication become vital.
This revised edition of SIGTTO’s book describes the importance of the vetting of LNG ships as a risk assessment tool. Laid out as a specialised guide it incorporates an overview of the trade of LNG by sea, covers technical aspects of LNG ships relevant to vetting and describes the current vessel clearance processes. It also details the use of the SIRE vessel inspection questionnaire for assessing risk and includes up to date industry best practices and recommendations.
