Two documents contained in this pack provide all necessary instructions on the maintenance of the LCBW 45(40)32/20(24,4)27,5 ST type Liebherr cranes. It was specifically develop to provide the crew members as well as all technical personnel engaged in maintenance/operation of these cranes, with necessary knowledge of technical peculiarities and all other information required for the safe operation.

The first document contains the chapters 1 to 3, i.e. the introductory chapter, chapter with general description of the cranes and their parts, and maintenance instructions. The second document contains the other four chapters providing the technical description, descriptions of the hydraulic functions, instructions on the operations in case of emergency, and a full set of drawings. The readers will for sure find everything they need in this set of files and thorough familiarization with the info provided herein will provide safe and harm-free operation/maintenance of these Liebherr cranes.

Apart from the technical data, the pack provides general advice and valuable hints for crane operators, standard hand signals, conversion tables, explanation of safety signs etc.

The main purpose of the author of this publication was to provide all interested people with some sort of guide to safe and efficient transportation of the LPG and ammonia; up to now, the coverage of ammonia transportation has never been covered in any single book. We do hope that it will be very useful not only to the personnel directly involved in operating the gas carriers but also to the operating staff of the gas terminals where such products are handled.

Though some treatment has been provided to the equipment used, this publication shall not be considered as the pure technical guide. The author tried to  examine the most important technical problems associated with the transportation and handling of the LPG/ammonia cargoes and cover some technical aspects of the running of LPG carriers. It shall be noted that at all stages the detail procedures to follow are depending upon the conditions under which the cargo will be loaded/discharged and carried - this can be done with the gas being fully-pressurized, semi-pressurized or fully-refrigerated (at regular atmospheric pressure).

The book is arranged in three parts, first two deal with the pressurized and fully-refrigerated ships while the third part concentrates on the cargo calculations, safety matters and recommendations. The technical information is supplemented with the glossary of the terms used.

There were numerous significant changes that occurred to the global maritime security; while some of these changes were necessary and even overdue, others did result in the situations where beneficiaries were the providers of the security services and associated equipment.

And against subject background, this publication is setting out to provide the reality check, bringing together a broad range of various perspectives of the critically important maritime issues collected from all parts of the world. The book contains chapters exploring the operational and also legal realities of the maritime security measures implemented straight after 9/11. The publication is mainly aimed at the people having serious interest in various dimensions of the newly introduced maritime security measures.

Above mentioned interest may be a general interest in the field of maritime security or a specific interest, for example ones directly relating to the implementation of ISPS Code, executing the practical security measures both in ports and at sea, or in the assessment of the potential security risks and threats treated as inherent in the realm of today's international shipping. The author of this volume strongly hope that the readers of all categories will find something of professional interest for them in the present document.

Below are some of the questions addressed within this LR paper: would you see yourself a driver of changes with regard to the use of the liquid natural gas as a fuel? today, is your port providing or at least planning to provide the infrastructure for LNG bunkering for the short-sea or local shipping? in July 2011, the IAPH (standing for the International Association of Ports and Harbours) launched a new project of developing guidelines for the LNG bunkering in ports, so does is your port participate in the project? what bunkering facilities (of what type) are currently provided in your Port for gas fuelled ships - or, if there are no such facilities at the moment, what are you planning to provide in the future? what is the timeframe for LNG bunkering operations to begin at your port? what are the anticipated sources of fuel for LNG bunkering and in what volumes will the fuel be provided? what kind of infrastructure are planned to be developed in your port for LNG fuel supply to the port? what will be the expected proportion of the gas fuel of the total volume in your port? in general, would you be considering the liquid gas as a bunker fuel for deep-sea shipping in the next years? which type of ships would you think to be best suited for such bunkering at your port and why?

The present briefing is intended to provide all interested parties with the general thoughts and required guidance relating to the dealing with the discrepancies between vessel and shore figures at a port of loading and on the utilization of the protest letters in such circumstances. The content of the publication comprises of the practical guidance followed by the fundamental theoretical information.

The practical guidance starts with the explanation of the insistence on the shore figures by the shippers and charterers. The major issue for the Masters when their vessel and shore figures are not matching during the loading of the liquid cargo is to make a decision on whether he could issue a truly honest bill of lading, i.e. the one not deceiving the receivers of the cargo into thinking that they are getting something that the vessel is not actually able to deliver.

The vitally important decision for the Master in these cases is to decide if the discrepancy lies within the acceptable margin. If so, then either of the figures can be correct. Issuing the bill of lading with the figures known to be false or the ones where the Master does not believe in their truth, would mean issuing a dishonest bill of lading. And, the definition of the acceptable margin varies from one loading to another, according to the particular circumstances and facts...

Looking into this volume, we have underline the main purpose of this well-written plus remarkably comprehensive publication is to describe physics of the seabed liquefaction processes taking place around marine structures, together with their implications for the pipelines and sea outfalls, plus quay walls, caisson breakwaters and different other marine structures.

We would recommend this title to literally all participants of the ocean as well as marine and coastal engineering industry and anyone with the practical interest in the liquefaction/stability of marine structures. Professor Mutlu Sumer, the author of the this title, has also included numerous real-life examples with the sole intention to duly illustrate the possible catastrophic consequences of the liquefaction of soil as applied to the various marine structures; moreover, the author has also addressed the matters of math modeling of the liquefaction.

Some other live examples are directly supporting the discussion on the proper assessment of potential the liquefaction has, as well as the investigation of the benchmark cases. A must-have reading to any specialist in different areas of ocean engineering and any associated disciplines, including students, pros, scientists/researchers taking part in the activities of marine and ocean engineering.
