The book is written as a practical sequential prompt, an aide-mémoire for serving officers and managers, and as a consolidated study guide for those undertaking the advanced training for chemical tanker cargo operations as required by the STCW Convention.

  • Ballast water systems and management

  • Cargo handling systems (pumps, pipelines, valves, vents, heating, cooling and inerting systems and instrumentation)
