STABILITY OF OFFSHORE SUPPLY SHIPS

In a communication to shipping organisations and shipbuilders dated 23 August 1977, the Chief of the Netherlands Shipping Inspectorate drew attention to the revised regulations concerning the intact stability of offshore supply ships. This article deals with the special operational requirements of offshore supply ships which have led to the formulation of the new recommendation on intact stability for these vessels. Factors affecting the stability are considered as follows: Influence of Trim on Stability: Influence of Water on Deck: Operational Requirements: Criteria for Intact Stability: Conclusions. The interim recommendation and the method for the calculation of stability curves are presented as an Appendix (in English). Order from BSRA as No. 54,260.
