THE COAST GUARD LOOKS AT INHERENT MANEUVERABILITY OF TANK VESSELS
In the Presidential Initiatives to reduce maritime oil pollution, the Coast Guard was charged with evaluating devices and operational techniques to improve maneuvering and stopping ability of large tankers, with research to include the use of ship simulators. The purpose of this evaluation is to develop sufficient information for making decisions on further action to reduce accidental oil pollution resulting from vessel collision, ramming, and grounding (CRG) accidents by investigating the potential that various devices and operational techniques may have on the maneuvering and stopping ability of large tankers.
