|Publisher||The Standard Club|
|D O W N L O A D|
Another Standard Club publication providing valuable information and guidelines on handling different kinds of cargo. This one is dealing with the preparation and cleaning of the bulk cargo holds. The intention of the authors of the whole Standard Cargo series of papers is to focus on the best practices to be applied when transporting cargo by sea.
The document is aimed to provide required assistance to the masters and cargo officers of the ships as well as to the chartering managers and shore support personnel including superintendents, to get better understanding of the preparation of the cargo holds prior to loading. Note that preparation of the holds is one of the most important parts of the process. It is not only concerned with the sweeping and cleaning of the holds or washing them.
There are numerous other matters to be considered. Failure to follow good practice and recommendations may eventually result in serious claims. Another problem can be lack of knowledge and this is something the present publication will help you with - the booklet covers use of chemicals and drying cargo holds, inspection of holds, bilge wells and line testing, cleaning equipment, master's duties and many other aspects. Apart from the general information, the document also contains several case studies analyzed and included for illustrating the content.
