COMBINATION SHIPS: TECHNICAL OPERATION
The Author states that from the operational viewpoint combination ships may be divided into two categories--those which carry the same type of cargo over long periods and those which regularly alternate by carrying two types of cargo such as crude oil and heavy bulk ore. The technical operation of the first category is as that for a conventional tanker or bulk carrier with some small modifications, whereas the second category demands more sophisticated operation for the fast turn round required in handling the two types of cargo. The paper examines all the aspects of this latter type of operation such as loading and discharging of the alternate cargoes, the special procedures, equipment and manning required in each case, preparation for taking on the new cargo, cleaning of tanks and maintenance. A knowledge of special safety precautions is important where changes in type of cargo are involved. Order from BSRA as No. 49,100.
