GOOD BUNKERING PRACTICE (VIDEO)

This training video released by Videotel and accompanied with the booklet provides required training on the bunkering. The bunkering operations are always very intense and challenging for all people onboard. It is often conducted when the crew members and supporting engineering personnel are all heavily pressed for both shortage in manpower and time available for the operation.

That is why it is critically important to ensure that they receive required training and are proficient in preparation for bunkering of the vessel, sampling and measurements conducted in the course of the bunkering process, bunkering itself and operations following the bunkering plus contingency planning.

The content of this training program has been significantly updated and improved. It is intended to be watched and read by all crew members and is now duly reflecting the changes in the bunkering market that took place over the last decade, including newly introduced sampling technologies and latest requirements of sixth annex to the MARPOL convention. The program is compliant with the relevant international legislation, and is highly recommended not only to the crew members but also to the future mariners.

VESSEL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SERIES — THE VOYAGE PLAN — EXECUTING, MONITORING AND CHART CORRECTIONS

One more film continuing the topic of the voyage plan started within the previous video which dealt with the appraisal and planning matters. The present training video is covering the executing and monitoring of the voyage plan. As it was explained in the content of the first part of the training, duly prepared voyage plan is considered critically important for the safe operation of any ship.

However, having even the best voyage plan is not enough - all efforts shall be made by the crew members of the vessel to make sure that the plan is properly executed and monitored.

SUCCESS WITH SIRE

The present video training programme is taking a remarkably detailed look at the SIRE Programme. SIRE is standing for the Ship Inspection Report. The content of the video starts with the brief discussion of the origins of this safety programme, considering the role of the persons using the reports and people performing the inspections.

The trainees will first look at the vessels particulars and vessel inspection questionnaires and then the focus will switch to the examination of the inspection process itself starting with what exactly shipboard personnel could do and should do when preparing for the inspection.

The author of the video has detailed every single aspect of the areas that are commonly checked by the inspectors, discussing what the inspectors would most probably want to see and check in the ship's documentation and providing numerous practical tips on what personnel should expect and be prepared to during a SIRE inspection.

He is also dealing with the obligation of the SIRE inspector to record all exceptions and what actions are to be taken by the personnel should they disagree with the findings. At the end, the author discusses the impact that the SIRE safety initiative has on the tanker fleet of today's world. The training is primarily aimed at the officers on the oil tankers.

SHIP HANDLING IN HEAD AND COUNTERING SEAS

When a ship navigates in head seas, it's hull is subjected to sever shocks which induce violent ship motions. As well trained and duly experienced navigators, we have the ability to provide our response to this through alteration of the course and speed of the ship to the required extent.

However, to accomplish safe navigation in head seas, it's advisable to have more reliable ship handling techniques backed by theoretical knowledge as to why these phenomena are created and what shall be done to avoid the generation of these critical effects in addition to possessing sea-going experience.

This instructional video is highly recommended to the ship navigators and particularly to the bridge teams of those vessel regularly navigating in the above mentioned conditions. By watching this video, they will find some information that will be of practical use and help them provide safe navigation of their vessels. The video will also serve as a great training tool for the newcomers and students who shall use it as a very effective supplementary training material.

METEOROLOGY FOR SAFE NAVIGATION IN TROPICAL AND EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONES

An excellent training video which will be greatly appreciated by the ship navigators. The audience for this training would consist of the future mariners, however it will also interest professional seamen since they may find something new. Every seafarer knows of the strong winds and heavy seas that are commonly caused by the fully developed tropical cyclones.

Such cyclones and typhoons sometimes dominate the seas with devastating forces. What is expected for navigators to ensure safe and economical voyages in such an environment? The content of this video will shed some light on this and will help to find the answers to the questions related to the navigation of the vessel in the difficult to handle conditions of the head and countering seas.

TARGET TRACKING DEVICES (VIDEO)

The present training video film was developed to supplement this training booklet and with the ultimate intention to provide a proper and easily accessible introduction to all major technologies that are making up the Target Tracking Devices; another aim of the authors was to describe to the trainees how exactly subject tracking devices are related to each other. The technologies that have been dealt with in this training video are the ARPA, AIS and ECDIS.

The training is primarily intended for the deck team including both senior and junior ship officers. Radar sweeping the surrounding sea, pinpointing ships, coastlines, every sweep plotting a new situation; by using this information together with the information on the speed and course of your vessel, it has long been possible to make a vector triangle identifying any targets. Of course, taking into account the congestion of the shipping lanes with dozens of vessels showing the same sea space and some vessels travelling at high speeds, calculations need to be swift and accurate.
