DEEPWATER PORTS APPROACH/EXIT CONTROL CAPABILITIES ASSESSMENT--TECHNOLOGY/SERVICE ALTERNATIVES
This report presents the results of a part of the Deepwater Ports Approach/Exit Control Capabilities Assessment Study. The report addresses existing or planned capabilities in such areas as traffic separation schemes, communication procedures; surveillance procedures; vessel control/advisory procedures; personnel manning qualifications and training. Pollution control measures and other areas capable of countering the hazards specified in the companion study, entitled Deepwater Ports Approach/Exit Hazard and Risk Assessment, were also included. Control capabilities are grouped into four major categories: ship control measures; pollution control measures; personnel considerations; and others. Various measures, whether existing, planned or potential alternatives, are discussed in detail with respect to system definition, system description, capability, accuracy where applicable, advantages, disadvantages, estimated cost where available, mitigative potential and pertinent references. A discussion on technology/service alternatives is presented in the final section.
