STRUCTURAL MEASURES TO ENSURE THE ECOLOGICAL RELIABILITY OF TRANSPORT SHIP HULLS

The ecological consequences of several serious accidents with large tankers caused the International Maritime Organization to develop a series of documents containing special regulations that substantially affect the hull structure of merchant ships. This article explains how these regulations--primarily incorporated in the MARPOL-73 Convention and the IMO's safety code for nuclear- powered commercial ships--have been complied with in the hull structural designs of various types of the latest Soviet vessels. Among the types discussed are the KRYM and POBEDA tankers, and the SEVMORPUT' nuclear-powered icebreaker container carriers. Special attention is given double sides and bottoms.
