The publication was released by North of England P&I Association in order to provide guidance to the stowage and securing of the pipes carried on board ships. It starts with some general technical information about handling pipes and applicable regulatory framework.
The second chapter will give valuable guidelines covering the characteristics of pipes, it will tell you what steps shall be taken prior to the loading, how to stow and secure pipes - and theoretical information will be supplemented with the worked examples.
The next chapter of the booklet is covering the protection of the pipes, construction of the stanchions, securing arrangements etc. There are two appendices to the main part of the publication, describing the advanced calculation method and providing necessary information and examples of verification of the securing alternatives for the pipes stowed on deck.
Needless to say that this compact yet very informative volume will be of great practical use for all parties involved in marine transportation of pipes and is therefore highly recommended to the crew members of the vessels transporting pipes as well as to any other person dealing with arrangement of their transportation.
