BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT.

An excellent video training officially provided by Walport International and covering the key points of the management and particularly treatment of the ballast water. We are all aware of the IMO requirement of "ninety-five percent volumetric exchange" of the ballast water in the ocean - and there are three IMO approved ways in which requirement can be met.

First, by the "sequential" method - here, the ballast tank is first emptied, and then it is filled with replacement ballast water. The second method is called the "flow-through" method - here, they pump the water into the ballast tank and allow it to overflow; note that pumping through three times the tank's volume is considered to meet that ninety-five percent target of exchanged water. Third - the "dilution" method - in this one, a constant level of water in the ballast tank is maintained while water is both pumped in at the top and simultaneously discharged from the bottom. Again, three times a tank volume is usually considered sufficient to meet IMO standards.

The IMO BWM Convention addressing the issues of management and control of ballast water provides captains with another option - on board treatment of the ballast water. Filter out those bio-stowaways with some other IMO approved treatment system and you can forget about ballast water exchange. Maybe, but not yet... The system is still coming and it is getting closer, and what it means is that in some ten years the ballast exchange will be a thing of the past... A very good supplementary material for training of crew members and all people involved in the BWM, i.e. ballast water management.

ABB CODE OF PRACTICE FOR MARINE AND CRANES

The present Code of Practice was developed by the ABB professionals in order to provide necessary technical guidance on proper safety planning for the operations on site. The authors did their best to produce the booklet giving the practical direction to the personnel involved in the crane works and make them achieve the ABB health & safety standards.

The book is mainly focused on site operations; however, the requirements that are set down also apply as a baseline for other operations. The material presented in the book shall be used for training purposes, and the requirements included therein, must be implemented as necessary. It may be used by project managers and sales when tendering for projects, and making the agreements with different parties. Note that the document presents the ABB's minimum standards; it bases on the ILO Code of Practice.

In case a national legislation (or customer requirements) set a higher standard, then the higher of the  standards must be used. It shall also be noted that some of the H&S risks may not be covered by this document. However, the paper is very useful to everyone willing to improve the safety awareness and get better idea of the crane operations on site.
