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.

Naval officers having some basic mathematical ability can easily make themselves familiar with the fundamental principles governing the design of the vessels and the most commonly used calculation methods; however, those willing to become naval constructors would require long and very patient apprenticeship of the shipyard.

The naval architecture addresses such the problems as how to make a vessel sail and carry weights, how to make the vessel stand right at sea and obey the commander, and go easily through the waves at a given speed, in fact everything connected with the construction of the vessels and prediction/calculation of their behavior at sea.

In fact, shipbuilding itself implies giving the materials of which the vessel is to be made of all the shapes, forms and dimensions, as well as strength and power characteristics required to make them fully comply with the conditions that have been already calculated by the naval architects. he naval architects, shipbuilders and marine engineers are representing three professional skills.

Their duties shall be performed successfully so that the duties of the newly built vessel may also be performed in a successful manner. All of these duties are considered essential but they do not have to be performed by three separate people... Have a look into this rare and classic book, you will not get disappointed, it is much more than a regular textbook.
