PREVENTION OF CORROSION ON BOARD SHIPS
|D O W N L O A D|
As we all know, there had been too many losses of the vessels, in some cases even without any traces, transporting solid cargoes in bulk form; in addition to that, numerous tragic losses of human lives took place in late-nineties. As a result of that, the IMO Assembly did request the MSC, standing for the Maritime Safety Committee, to work on the development of technical requirements that would apply to the design and construction of the aforementioned ships as well as surveys on board those ships and periodic maintenance.
Their efforts resulted in the present publication containing the important mandatory/non-mandatory technical guidelines and performance standards to be complied with at all times. Five major areas have been covered in the pages of this volume, namely guidelines to be used when selecting, applying and maintaining the shipboard corrosion prevention systems applied inside the dedicated salt water tanks, standards applicable those tanks of the double-skin carriers, covering of the void spaces in oil tankers and bulk carriers. The fourth part contains provisions related to the permanent shipboard access means, while the last one is dealing with the periodic technical maintenance and repair of the coatings.
