COMBINATION SHIPS: SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
This paper concentrates on the safety aspects of OBO, Oil/Ore and BORO ships. The history and causes of explosions in combination carriers in recent years is discussed and slack holds together with dirty ballast tanks are seen as major safety risks on these types of ship. Inert gas systems, continual monitoring of oxygen levels in tanks, and efficient ventialtion systems are all considered important for protection against explosions. Tank washing and the evaluation of the operational situation on a combination ship are both discussed. Some regulations for the building and operation of combination ships from the point of view of safety according to the Norwegian Maritime Directorate are listed. Order from BSRA as No. 48,954.
