MEANS OF MINIMIZING POLLUTION AT CONVENTIONAL PIER AND SEA ISLAND FACILITIES

Describes means to minimize the risk of accidental discharges of harmful cargoes at conventional pier and sea island facilities. The scope of the investigation includes the berthing, mooring and cargo transfer phases of the terminal operations. Areas requiring improvement were established after reviewing the major causes of spills, current governmental regulations, and operating practices at several locations. The specific measures proposed can be classified in two categories: 1) Instrumentation systems and 2) Procedures to improve personnel performance. Many of the concepts discussed can be implemented immediately at most facilities; others will depend upon the terminals past experience and a risk assessment of present operations. Incorporation of the type systems/procedures into the design and operation of a marine terminal, should significantly improve the overall safety and efficiency of the terminal.
