|D O W N L O A D|
The present recommendations were written in order to provide industry with the single document containing the guidelines relating to the manifolds and strainers installed on board vessels carrying LNG and LPG cargoes, with the objective to promote the improvement of the safety of the operations and their efficiency. They are also aimed at providing assistance to the persons engaged in arranging the facilities in the jetties.
The content of the publication was thoroughly reviewed by the leading ship operators, professional naval architects, shipbuilders and manufacturers of the relevant shipboard equipment. The instructions and guidance provided here will be useful to the LNG/LPG ship owners, planners, operators and other parties involved. The document opens with the introduction where tits scope and purpose are defined, followed by the description of the categories of the LNG and LPG ships.
The cargo manifold position is covered in the following chapter together with the associated requirements. The strainers have been discussed in the separate section of the book. Apart from that, the authors have also dealt with the protection of the marine environment from the spills originating from the cargo manifolds, lighting of the cargo manifold area, service lines and many other topics, up to the safety requirements.
