The best maritime and offshore library


This collection of training videos will provide users with all necessary instructions related to the Kongsberg K-Bridge system. The arrangement of the content is nearly similar to the one of the pack dealing with the JRC system. The first of the video lessons is introductory and tells you how to find your UPN, standing for the User Permit Number. The second and third lessons cover deleting of the ENC data and permits.

The other five lessons making the pack are dealing with the same subjects as in the JRC training, i.e. installing the public key for the S-63 1.1, ENC permits, AVCS base and update CD media, and finally the DVD media. Needless to say that this training package will be of great practical interest and use for all crew members immediately involved in the installation and use of the system.

However, taking into account the information it provides and clarity and conciseness of the explanations and descriptions provided in these videos, we would say that it will be good for any navigator to acquaint himself or herself with the content. Even if you have some other ECDIS system installed on your ship, understanding of the fundamental concept and different systems will give them a good advantage.

This publication was prepared and released by the Japan P&I Club. The intention of the authors was to give some brief introduction to the shipboard cranes and their operation, with due attention paid to the most common reasons for their failures. This compact title provides general guidelines on the routine maintenance and inspections of the cranes. The structure and machinery of the cranes have been discussed together with the wire ropes.

Then the content proceeds to the crane operation and the incidents that involve crane damage. The grabs have been discussed separately together with their capacity, SWL and use. And of course, the authors concentrated on safety matters as well. The cargo handling cranes are installed on most of the vessels, especially general cargo ships and bulk carriers.

They are normally quite robust units continuing to work with nearly minimum maintenance; however, they are complex machinery units incorporating many components that are manufactured to the fine tolerance values. All of the components shall function correctly through the entire lifetime of the crane. The cranes shall be duly maintained and checked at a specified time intervals to make sure they are operated safely and correctly.

The short video training film devoted to the effectiveness of the communication. The authors want to demonstrate how important it is to establish and subsequently maintain a proper communication procedures on absolutely all levels if you want to operate your ship safely and efficiently. The communication is commonly referred to as a transfer of messages and signals between persons willing to create an understanding or a particular meaning, or a certain type of reaction.

Should there be no reaction received, then we are most probably talking about the one-way type of communication. Three major communication types include verbal, written and non-verbal communication meaning signals and signs. One can never overestimate the importance of having a good communication for the safety of navigation and ship handling at all times. A lack of communication is one of the reasons leading to bad consequences.

According to the statistical data collected in the past decades, from seventy to eighty per cents of all accidents and incidents occurring at sea are originating from some sort of communication problem. That is why it is very important for all crew members to work out good and effective communication procedures.

The latest edition of the major IMO convention dealing with the prevention of marine pollution concerned with the protection on the marine environment. The main technical content of the present convention has been arranged in six big Annexes. Note that the five of them, i.e. Annexes from I (oil pollution prevention) to V (garbage pollution prevention) were adopted by MARPOL 1973 as further modified by a 1978 Protocol. The last sixth Annex was adopted by a Protocol which followed in 1997 covering the air pollution prevention.

In general, all annexes together cover the prevention of pollution of marine environment by oil, by NLS, standing for the noxious liquid substances carried in bulk, by harmful substances carried in packaged form, by sewage and garbage from ships, and air pollution. Needless to say that this is one of the most important publications to be carried on board any vessel to which present convention applies.

It is a must-have document for the port state control officers and marine surveyors checking the vessel for compliance with the requirements of convention, for the crew members responsible for keeping the vessel compliance, and for the ship designers and builders who shall have clear understanding of the convention in order to design a vessel that would meet all applicable requirements.
