IMPROVED LOAD-ON-TOP SYSTEM FOR PREVENTION OF OIL POLLUTION FROM TANKERS

The system--installed onboard a 237000 dwt tanker--consisted of two 100 t/h-capacity oil/water separators, two kinds of oil content meters, monitoring instrument, etc, and in 1976 put to full-scale shipboard tests four times during the ship's ballasted voyages between Japan and Middle East. The shipboard test showed that the improved load-on-top system could completely satisfy the oil discharge standard adopted by the 1973 IMCO convention. Order from NSFI as No. 15022.
