Chemical Tanker Operations for the STCW Advanced Training Course. (eBook) Student Version - A Practical Guide to Chemical Tanker Operations
This publication is a comprehensive guide to chemical tanker cargo operations. It is an essential reference point for serving officers and managers, as well as those undertaking advanced training as required by the STCW Convention. Fully illustrated throughout with colour photographs and annotated diagrams, it covers topics such as international regulations, cargo handling and hazards, environmental protection, emergency response, safety management, tank cleaning and ship design and equipment.
The contents do not challenge the established in-depth guidance of other industry organisations, but provides a cross-reference to those publications to ensure an overall understanding of safe chemical tanker operations.
The book is written as a practical sequential prompt, an aide-mémoire for serving officers and managers, and as a consolidated study guide for those undertaking the advanced training for chemical tanker cargo operations as required by the STCW Convention.
Chemical Tanker Operations for the STCW Advanced Training Course provides a wealth of information, ideal for serving officers and managers, as well as those undertaking advanced training as required by the STCW Convention. Elements of chemical tanker operations covered include:
