Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. Chemical tankers often have a system for tank heating in order to maintain the viscosity of certain cargoes, typically by passing pressurized steam through stainless steel heating coils in the cargo tanks, transferring heat into the cargo which circulates in the tank by convection. All modern chemical tankers feature double hull construction and most have one hydraulically driven, submerged cargo pump for each tank with independent piping, which means that each tank can load a separate cargo without any mixing. Consequently, many oceangoing chemical tankers may carry numerous different grades of cargo on the same voyage, often loading and discharging these parcels at different ports or terminals. This means that the scheduling, stowage planning and operation of such ships requires a high level of coordination and specialist knowledge, both at sea and on shore.This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview on chemical tankers. It covers the cargos in chemical tanker, physical properties of cargo and hydrocarbon groups; the health hazards, hazards to the environment, reactivity hazards, flammability and explosivity hazards; the international and national codes and regulations; the bulk chemical codes and Annex II of Marpol 73/78; and the ship design, construction and equipment requirements, the cargo containment, ship types and survival capability. At the end of the course, participants will be able to carryout cargo handling system, tank piping and valves, tank materials and coatings and cargo tanks ventilation systems; recognize pumps and unloading systems, cargo heating systems, inert gas systems and instrumentation; illustrate fire prevention and equipment, pollution prevention and protection and safety equipment; employ cargo handling, ballast operations, cargo planning and procedures and preparations for loading; measure and calculate cargo and apply tank cleaning operations; and implement ship-shore interface and emergency operations
