    Abstract

    A novel mini-TLP called SeaStar and designed by Atlantia Corporation has been selected by British Borneo for use in the Morpeth field on the Ewing Bank Gulf of Mexico. Structural benefits of the SeaStar are outlined. The deck design of the SeaStar differs from existing TLP technology as it can be installed after the hull is installed and the deck and hull can be optimised separately. The production system has several operational benefits compared with remote subsea production systems. SeaStar can operate with one or two tendons per corner.

    Abstract

    At this time of rapid change in the structure of the world trade in fertilizer materials, and of growing share of sea-borne movement of liquid intermediates, there is a need for up-to-date and compact information on maritime terminals. The British Sulphur Corporation has produced the first compilation of dedicated maritime terminals handling phosphoric/superphosphoric acid, ammonia and liquid sulphur. It lists maritime terminals by region/country.

    Abstract

    The report has been written as a result of research being carried out following an investigation of a fatal hovercraft capsize by the Hovercraft Consultative Officer of the Trade and Industry, Marine Division. Although it has arisen from this particular incident, it discusses all aspects of hovercraft stability and control with particular reference to the avoidance of possible dangerous situations.

  • Canadian accident report published

    Date published

    1995

    Abstract

    In February 1992 Royal Vancouver a Kvaerner Fjellstrand Flying Cat 40 m catamaran then operated by Royal Sealink Express and Queen of Saanich a 130 m ro-ro passenger/vehicle ferry operated by British Columbia Ferry Corporation collided at the northern entrance to Active Pass Canada. The Transportation Board of Canada has now issued a report on the accident in which 19 passengers and four crew members on board Royal Vancouver sustained minor injuries. The Board concluded that there is potential for serious injuries in collisions involving high speed craft as a result of passengers being thrown about or being struck by unsecured objects. It also concluded that the severity of injuries could be reduced if passengers were informed of safety procedures and equipment and that there is a need for specialized training of crew. Recommendations were made based on these findings.

  • Marine engineers' pocket book 3rd edition

    Abstract

    A mariner engineers' pocket book on mechanics, heat and strength of materials, also including electricity, refrigeration, turbines and oil engines. During his career the author made notes for his own use and the instruction of others he was teaching - he has compiled them as a useful pocketbook for marine engineers. The number of books a marine engineer can carry with him at sea is limited, so a handy compend of the various rules and tables is useful for reference. To keep pace with the times, considerable alteration has been made to this 3rd edition; the rules of boilers have been amended to conform with the new rules passed by the Board of Trade, Lloyds and the British Corporation. The sections on turbines and diesel engines have been brought up to date and oil fuel has received further attention.
