One more short yet interesting and useful animation about shipboard machinery - this one is demonstrating the whole process of the tank cleaning on oil tankers. All you have to do is just spend some minutes watching this small training animation and you will get duly familiarized with the tank cleaning process on a big oil tankers utilizing the smaller vessel and pumping arrangements.

Such animations can be used as the supplementary visual material for training crew members, students and future professionals of the industry. It does not actually require any specific technical knowledge of the process so will be excellent for introductory purposes, i.e. to be used for training people having little to no idea about tank cleaning activities.

As it is clearly understood from the title of the present training video film, it is intended to address the handling of the vegetable oils transported by sea. The main topics of the film are maintaining the quality of the cargo, preparation to load, actual loading, carriage and discharge of vegetable oils, personal hazards involved in the process, and tank cleaning.

The target audience of this training program would mainly include deck officers while a key objective of the film was to emphasize the whole importance of strictly following the cargo requirements and operating procedures. It should be clearly understood that vegetable oils are very challenging type of cargoes needing careful handling not deteriorating their quality and not increasing their FFA (standing for the free fatty acid) content. Definitely, carefully prepared and well detailed cargo plan is an essential way to avoid the difficulties usually faced when dealing with vegetable oils...

According to the official statistics, the greater part of cargo voyages ends successfully, but research by UK P&I Club reveals that, unfortunately, an increasing number do not. Across the industry, cargo loss or damage accounts for one out of four major insurance payouts. The gas is the world's favorite fuel, and keeping up with demand requires more and more ships, and more and more crews.

So, how will gas shipping meet the challenge of change? This official video release prepared by the UK P&I Club sheds some light on the most important aspects of transporting the gas cargo by sea. The authors are mainly focusing on the most frequently happening gas cargo claims and their causes; they are trying to find out how to avoid them. As it is the case with any other publication from this team, the video has the ultimate aim to increase the awareness of the people related to the causes of the common P&I claims for the damage and loss of transported cargo.

That is why we would consider these publications, and Gas Cargo Claims, in particular, the useful training material for all students and professionals, including ship owners, crew members and everyone involved in marine transportation of gas.

The seafarers of today are commonly quite well aware of the serious risks that are associated with loading/unloading of various bulk cargoes. It should be noted, however, that sometimes the cargo itself can present a serious hazard. For example, the liquefaction of some cargoes may lead to the loss of stability and even capsizing of the vessel, while transportation of some other cargoes may be under the risks of the chemical reactions resulting in the explosion.

It is extremely difficult to deal with the real hazard, that is why it is always better to try to prevent it rather than cure. The IMSBC Code was released to provide necessary guidance to all people directly engaged in transportation of the bulk cargoes by sea. The list of the cargoes covered in the document includes about 150 names, and the Code addresses literally all important aspects of transportation - it will show how to properly assess the acceptability of the cargo, how to handle it, carry it on board the vessel and discharge at the destination point. The intention of the film is to provide the general introduction to the content of the Code and supplement it through presenting a logical process of the actions applicable to the transportation of these cargoes.

The target audience would include the crew members of the vessels transporting solid bulk cargoes, port authorities, marine surveyors, shore personnel and other parties involved. This video training film shall be supplementing the training booklet providing the text information on same topic.

The ship-shore interface (petroleum tankers)
   Arrival in port is a crucial time. First, you have to get alongside safely. And, once that's done, the real work begins. Relationship between the ship and the shore is absolutely fundamental, it is the key item which determines the safe operation of all activities at the jetty. The ship must have a good understanding and confidence in the shore offices, and the shore officers, equally, must have a sound understanding and knowledge of the work that ship people do. Without that, unfortunately, it is very-very difficult to be sure that the operation is set on a proper professional basis and if the ship shore-safety checklist is not followed, then your are facing a disaster.
