----> Askd me if i did ny drydock nd Draw the tailshaft diagram showing all d arrangements nd dont show d propeller nd intermediate

shaft bearing, i startd drawing nd he dint like it and straightaway stopped me nd went into next function nd he wrote F in front of function 3. fn3 1. latest mepc discussion 2. airlock 3. dont remember...but was easy only... 2/01/12: DGS(MR.DATTAR & GADKAR) ALL FUNCTION FUN-3 1:-why ISM came n as a 2nd eng wat is ur duty under ISM code. 2:-wat is the majore change in design of bulk carrier after 1st jan 2011. 3:-wat r the changes in fixed fire fighting sytem of co2. 4:-wat is bulk stool in bulck carrier n torsion box in container vessel. 5:-marpole amenmendent n wat is nox n how will u control. Fn3 1)MEPC what amendment came out in Dec 11 in Durban? dont know 2) Types of floor 3) Air lock diagram, he didnt accepted the diagram which is in circulation.(diagram showing compressor room)

fn 3 type of ship done only bulk carriers 1. new const features of bulk cariers. recentamendments for bulk carriers safety. bulk head is continious or tank top is continious? tank top is continious. construction of d.b tks.what is present in d.b. 2.diff btw life boat and rescue boat. latest amendments of life boat 3.define collision bulk head. 4. nox, tier 1, 2 , 3. which is now in force

nox is mor in 2s or 4s.....dont no fun.3.. 1.)what is the diff in lifeboat tanker? said abt the air bottles n sprinkler system...wanted more...i could rem only these pts... 2.)how many bulkheads in ur bulk carrier?it was 8 hatch bulk carrier...i said 11...but it is 10....said me to draw n show ..how 11?....drawn when calculated again it was10...lot of confusion.... 1. ISM with all ammendments. 2. IG plant trips. 3. As per annex-1 Max tank capacity for VLCC and ULCC ?-- no idea 4. Coating in VLCC Cargo tanks -- i said amine cured phenolic epoxy ... but then he told me that it is very expensive.. after this no idea .... about how to bring this expensivness down... 5. type of floors, draw bracket floor...... 4) emcy swbd regulations ans: solas chapter 2-1 part d,reg no 45....all same stuff...0.6 mtr,insuation mats,deadfront,ebonite handles,no pipelines co2 extinguisher....cross question type of battery for emcy gen start....nickel cadmium..startting regulations...said as per regulations i.e, hydraulic one, pneumatic one which should be dedicated to that only etc...all as per solas..pls read solas..

3. blr survey? i said in first 5 yrs 2 times and interval bet 2 should not exceed 30 months.agreed. bt asked if i do it in 1st 18 months then when will b the next survey i said after 30 months, he said u people misinterpret the circulars. dint know wt u want.guys plz go through the circular on dg shipping site carefully. crossed this.

1) what are the types of lpg carrier? dont know. 2)what is air lock? with drawing? told him all the points including drawing. then ask about how positive pressure is maintained when you enter the motor room. explained him. then he ask for ventillation, that unfortunately i told him exhaust fan n got trap. big cross. guys be prepare with air lock thoroughly, bcoz he is askin in detail. For compressor room one fan is fitted with exhaust mode, whereas in motor room two fans are fitted but supplying air in the motor room. This is wht mr.trassi wants to hear fan for compressor room in exhaust mode only and fan for motor room in supply mode to keep the motor room pressurised so that explosive gases cannot enter in motor room....and also a fan provided for air-lock space in supply mode. fun3 -latest mepc circular 62 ( tld him abt durban convention last yr...green fund, green house gasses emmisions, marpol annex6 latest addition ie chapt 4...EEDI...asked me formula didnt no dat)

-draw the cross section of ur tanker and solid floors ( showed him double hull tanker and solid floor diagram fully labelled....asked me width of double bottom and inner hull....tld him dimensions of chem 3 tankes as i didnt no for oil tanker.....wrong ;(.... ) -hyper mist regulations - what is a double acting tanker ...?????????

application of ISPS (indian coastal waters), check nautical circular on ISPS 3 categories of ships 1. Trading vessels of above 3000 Gt engaged in coastal waters of india. 2. Ships less than 3000 but more than 500 gt in coastal waters of india. 3. Ships less than 500 GT operating in IV water limits, habour and port facility, sheltered waters and restricted areas where there is common interface with foreign going vessels. orals on 09.01.2012 the great pratap bhosle took my orals. 1) chem tankers comes under which code-told him ibc code wat is that and wat certificates r carried under this code-told him some points and certificate of fitness

2) which bulkheads b/n tanks-watertight bulkhead can u draw and show me yes sir same drawn..can u drw corrugated bulkhead -fuck was unable to draw.asked me bout bulkhead stool and how bulkheads supported from top

3) psc inspector has come for inspection wat things he'll check related 2 oil pollution started wid certificates-iopp he stopped me and askem me form is attached with wat is written in that...wat is form A......told him sum points and about inspection told him about the checking of ows incinerator,bilge pump wat he'll check in ows

4) how is chain attached....and types of chains.....and percentage elongation accepted unable 2 give gud answer for this

Fn3 1.)Types of Gas carriers?told him A,B,C he accepted.

2.)Difference between IBC and BCH?I did not answer this well. 3.)What is water pad? 3.)Types of floors? 4.)Boiler Survey interval?He asked me if first done in 18months then when next,told him within next 36months,he agreed.

BOILER SURVEY SCHEDULE:- I HOPE THIS HELPS U GUYZ

New survey schedule - Two boiler surveys are required during each 5 year period of the classification certificate. - The interval between any two successive boiler surveys is not to exceed 36 months. - The survey shall be carried out on or before the due date. Time window is not applicable. - One survey shall be carried out in conjunction with the renewal survey, i.e. during the 15 months prior to expiry date of the classification certificate

In particular, one should as far as possible avoid crediting a boiler survey during the first 9 months of the 5 year period of the classification certificate, as this will result in the need for 3 boiler surveys during the 5 year period in order to comply with the rules.

If the 1st boiler survey is credited during the first 9 months of the 5 year period, the 2nd will be due before the 15 month window of the renewal survey, and consequently a 3rd boiler survey must be carried out to comply with the Rules.

If the 1st boiler survey is carried out between 9 months and 2 years after the start of the class period, the 2nd boiler survey will be due within the window of the renewal survey

If the 1st boiler survey is carried out between 2nd and 3rd annual survey (e.g. concurrently with intermediate survey), the 2nd boiler survey will be due at the end of the renewal survey and thus provide the best flexibility.

?1st Attempt- Tirassi - 09 Jan,2012 1. Safety a) What is the difference between GC code and IGC code I explained him that IGC code applies to ship after 1 July 1986 while GC applies to ships before this period. Both contain the same no. of chapters i.e. 19. Special requirements have been added for carriage of Ammonia in IGC code- Because ammonia causes stress corrosion when carried in Carbon manganese tanks, the min and max value of Yield Strength for carbon manganese has been specified. b) What is the difference between BCH code and IBC code ? Explained him the same applicability criteria as well as the difference in content of Chapters BCH contains 7 chapters while IBC contains 21. The contents of the 7 chapters of the BCH code has been expanded and is detailed in the 1st 18 chapters of IBC code. While the remaining 3 chapters of IBC are new additions. Chapter 17 of IBC contains the List of cargoes to which this code applies. Cross question: What is the difference between this list and the previous list in BCH code? I was not able to answer this.

c) What is the Boiler survey period? Twice in 5 years with a minimum gap of 30 months Cross question: Suppose 1st survey is carried out in 18 months , when will the next survey be carried out? Told him 45 months but he said wrong and told me that I have interpreted it wrongly. He asked me to go to DG shipping site and check this out and told me that the correct answer is after 36 months i.e. before the 54th month.

1) chem tankers comes under which code-told him ibc code wat is that and wat certificates r carried under this code-told him some points and certificate of fitness

2) which bulkheads b/n tanks-watertight bulkhead can u draw and show me yes sir same drawn..can u drw corrugated bulkhead -fuck was unable to draw.asked me bout bulkhead stool and how bulkheads supported from top

3) psc inspector has come for inspection wat things he'll check related 2 oil pollution started wid certificates-iopp he stopped me and askem me form is attached with wat is written in that...wat is form A......told him sum points and about inspection told him about the checking of ows incinerator,bilge pump wat he'll check in ows

4) how is chain attached....and types of chains.....and percentage elongation accepted 1) PSC Regime. 2) Paris MOU. 3) Sopep wt all documents present in it. Ans: Shell expansion plan, tank capacity, particulars,etc. 4) Hatch cover water tight arrangement with diagram. 5) Panting and thr stiffening members with diagram. 2.draw propeller shaft only the aft part, now explain how the propeller is mounted n various methods, explain the pilgrim nut method. what if when u check bedding with die test(persian blue) it is only 60% n not 80% embeddibility, what will u do to increase it?? 1)ship is loaded upto 90 to 95 %.now bad weather and ship is rolling n pitching, so what arrangement in oil tanker is provided to avoid this excessive sloshing on. 2) tank gauge and UTI? 3) What is MRCC? 4) draw rudder. 5) What is rise of floor, what is its use . 6) what is multigas detector and any other method of instrument for checking gas? 7) what are ambient limitation of using isotrope for co2 measurement SOLUTIONS FUNC 3: 1) Deck transverse webs are provided to avoid this sloshing effect. Diagram - DJ EYRES sixth edition pg no 254. 2) RIse of floor - rise of bottom shell plating line above the base line. Diagram - DJ EYRES - pg no 13. its use is since it is a rise it will cause all the sea water in the ballast tanks to accumulate on one side from where the suction to the ballast p/p is provided. --------------------------------------------------3) MRCC - MARITIME RESCUE CO-ORDINATION CENTRE. Centres are in UK AND SINGAPORE. During distress and alert signals, these centre are notified and they provide the information to the ships nearby agencies for rescue. They operate 24*7*365 days. 4) In scrubber tower the o2 content increases because when s.w ( at around 30 deg ) cools the inert gas the dissolved oxygen get converted to gas by taking the heatt from the gas. (same is the reason why hotwells for boiler water tank are operated at high temp) 5) CO2 LEVEL MEASUREMENT - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geiger_counter

1) X-section of gas carrier, I hv drawn a LPG tank but not shown secondary barrier told him no primary & secondar bariers. actually temp below -55 so hull can be secondar barrier so totally wrong in concept 2) SCABA bottle wen do u pressure test? reply was during evry fire drill ok then wat is the speciality abt the compr ans was it will have canister filter at the delivery which turns frm green to red when filter is choked. satisfied wid that before that I told all bullshit that it is 3-stage compr at deliver ratings upto 300 bar not interseted in all this

stuff 3) what is the m/l of gasket/joint used in gas carrier? no ans actually this 1 q gave him the complete impression abt my gas knowledge that I know nothin. acc to my 2/e its a sin ot to know 4)what is ship squat? told him in layman words but needs xaclty what is the concept so told me u didn't got the concept right so wrong there 5) radio isotope co2 level measuring: told him how it done & temp. I was having 2 temp in mind 32 & 40 but asked me to stand on 1. so told him 32 as it is the critical temp. but shld hv told him 32 is not possible as ambient T @sea, so 40 is used. correct me regarding this but he is ok wid my ans 1) Draw CLASS B Rudder I drew Spade Rudder but didnt know the location of key as as far as I know then transmission is through bolt located below pintle but he said your drawing is wrong as youve not shown any key or rudder stock bolts so this answer was wrong 4) What is heavy weather hold ballast? I answered as it is done in hatches to submerge propeller and for stability then started the cross questions seriesany speciality? I said ballast pump line and strength is increased compared to other hatches & we can isolate alarm for hold flooding for that individual hold but he wanted more so again cross mark. 5) SCBA bottle why it is not charged with MAC? I said its pressure is high then asked me what else I said air quality cause MAC oil carryover but he said even the SCBA comp has got oil I said its the special filter cartridge that purifies air of dirt and oil then he was satisfied so that was the only correct answer in safety. 2) csr comes under which code? ans- isps inorder for issue of interim international ship safety certificate should CSR be present on board? told him no.CSR should be placed on bord during the 6 month validity of interim certificate.he asked is CSR mandatory? said yes. no ISSC will be issued without CSR. he asked when will interim certificate be issued? told himduring interim certification only the objectiives of isps to be achieved. then he said wat else requirements to be satisfied for interim certification? told the foll -----------------------------------------------------------------ans-An Interim International Ship Security Certificate shall only be issued when the Administration or recognized security organization, on behalf of the Administration, has verified that: .1. the ship security assessment required by this Part of the Code has been completed; .2. a copy of the ship security plan meeting the requirements of chapter XI-2 and part A of this Code is provided on board, has been submitted for review and approval, and is being implemented on the ship; .3. the ship is provided with a ship security alert system meeting the requirements of regulation XI-2/6, if required; .4. the company security officer: .1. has ensured: .1. the review of the ship security plan for compliance with this Part of the Code; .2. that the plan has been submitted for approval; and .3. that the plan is being implemented on the ship; and .2. has established the necessary arrangements, including arrangements for drills, exercises and internal audits, through which the company security officer is satisfied that the ship will successfully complete the required verification in accordance with section 19.1.1.1, within 6 months; .5. arrangements have been made for carrying out the required verifications under section 19.1.1.1; .6. the master, the ship security officer and other ships personnel with specific security duties are familiar with their duties and responsibilities as specified in this Part of the Code; and with the relevant provisions of the ship security plan placed on board; and

have been provided such information in the working language of the ships personnel or languages understood by them; and .7. the ship security officer meets the requirements of this Part of the Code 3)ism validity of doc and ismc(12 mnths and 6mnths). what happens when a non confirmity is found? told him if non conformity it has to be downgraded and rectified and peventive action to be taken to prevent reoccurance. (use these words he is particular) what happens when MNC is raised in DOC? told DOC is withdrawn and all smc"s assocoated with it will be withdrawn. then he said what happens after that? told him MNC downgraded rectified and preventive action to be taken to prevent re occurance. then what certificate is issued? told him DOC and ISMC.( dont tell interim certificates will be issued) if you read csr it says it should contain at least the foll info stated under csr. any info other than that wil be as per the requirement of admin. as per bakral last 10 ports of call should also be recorded in csr Lenon Colao actually chapter XI requirements on safety and security began after september 11 2001 attacks and was divided in two parts safty and security and entry in force july 2004. both the chapters go hand in hand and deals with safety and security. how propeller designs are modified to comply requirement of eedi?..... anyone? Karthik Reddiar Larger propeller diameter involving: Higher propeller efficiency Lower optimum propeller speed(rpm) Lower number of propeller blades involving: Slightly higher propeller efficiency Increased optimum propeller speed (rpm) (from 6 to 5 blades means approximately 10% higher rpm) Karthik Reddiar that is where ultra long green engine known as G-ME was introduced.rpm reduced nd large propeller dia with optimum ratio of the propeller pitch and propeller diameter. Ashish Agrawal kartik , he told me two method after i was finished with my reply...i.e. propeller boss fins and skewed propellers...also told there are other too... 3)EEDI- what is it, i said...ghg and concerns of co2 emission related to it...then asked how propeller designs are modified to comply requirement of eedi....i said may be an inclined geometry with larger dia.....not satisfied special question was CO2 LEVEL checking by isotope method....My answer cud not satisfy MR. Ghosh I said one Gieger Method to check by isotope...if search on net u'll get the info about it...Till this he was ok bt what he told after that ki "in this method temperature is very important...u have to maintain temperature of bottles low...at low temp Co2 is in liquid form in the bottles so either you cool the co2 room somehow by putting a cooling arrangement or by any means. N i forgot to tell him da safety precautions regarding this method that we hv to blank da main line remove the links isolate the Co2 system n all dat stuff bt got a big cross PLS ANSWER..FOR..CO2 SYSTEM L.P.

Rohit Ghadge foam diff crude oil,chemical n product tanker : 1. Protein foam concentrate. It is diluted with water to form 3% to 6% solutions depending on the type and, in general, it is only used for crude oil fires. 2. Fluoroprotein foam concentrate is very similar to protein foam concentrates. It may also deposit a vaporisation preventing film on the surface of a liquid fuel. It is diluted with water to form 3% to 6% solutions depending on the type, and is used for crude oil or refined oil products where a higher degree of protection is preferred. 3. Special alcohol type foam concentrate forms a foam that has an insoluble barrier in the bubble structure which resists breakdown at the interface of the fuel and foam blanket. It is used for fighting fires in water solution and certain flammable or combustible liquids and solvents that are destructive to regular foam. Mainly used for protection onboard chemical tankers. Draeger-Tubes are glass vials filled with a chemical reagent that reacts to a specific chemical or family of chemicals. A calibrated 100 ml sample of air is drawn through the tube with the Draeger accuro bellows pump. If the targeted chemical(s) is present the reagent in the tube changes color and the length of the color change typically indicates the measured concentration. The Draeger-Tube System is the world's most popular form of gas detection.

1)IBC AND BCH difference..

ans: the dates as 1st july 1986 thing. and IBC mandatory under solas chapter seven whereas BCH only voluntary. also post 1993 edition of BCH are shortened as it asks the user to refer chapter 17 and 18 of IBC... he asked the difference in coloumns in new IBC and old one in chapter 17...i dont know.. 2)air lock in lpg carrier.. ans: only motor room presurized NOT the air lock space..compressor room under negative pressure and regulations as per IGC code. 3)vegetable oil -pollution category ans: Y category and type 2 chemical tanker. 3)fuel oil bunker specs... ans:ISO 8217:2010....he wants this year 2010...... 2)stern seal-explain. ans:drawn the drawing..not much of cross question..only he askd wat if it leaks and wat r ur options,.. again i took assumption as calm sea ,so not much change in draft...make arrngmt for equalising pressures at seal by calculation i.e height and density ....also i said go for cylinder oil...or that environmental friendly oil,some gard. dont remember name..said thts biological,,,no harm to sea if it leaks... 3)anchor not heaving up...wat u ll check.. ans: check the performance of motor and pump...how? engage winch and chain drum..load the motor...check the pressure gauge on pump...if its increasing and relief valve lifts, no problem wid machinery ...if pressure is stutttering,hyd motor piston rings may be broken as i said Radial piston type hyd motor...or else working clearances for pump increased so unable to build pressure...or oil temperatures high... finally possible anchor blocked due to some foreign object,,,he gave an assumption that coupling between winch and chain drum

Oxy-fuel Gouging

Oxy-fuel or flame gouging offers fabricators a quick and efficient method of removing metal. It can be at least four times quicker than cold chipping operations. The process is particularly attractive because of its low noise, ease of handling, and ability to be used in all positions. Process description Flame gouging is a variant of conventional oxyfuel gas welding. Oxygen and a fuel gas are used to produce a high temperature flame for melting the steel. When gouging, the steel is locally heated to a temperature above the 'ignition' temperature (typically 900deg.C) and a jet of oxygen is used to melt the metal - a chemical reaction between pure oxygen and hot metal. This jet is also used to blow away molten metal and slag. It should be noted that compared with oxyfuel cutting, slag is not blown through the material, but remains on the top surface of the workpiece. The gouging nozzle is designed to supply a relatively large volume of oxygen through the gouging jet. . Progressive gouging This technique is used to produce uniform grooves. Gouging is conducted in either a continuous or progressive manner. Applications include removal of an unfused root area on the reverse side of a welded joint, part-shaping a steel forging, complete removal of a weld deposit and preparing plate edges for welding.

Spot gouging Spot gouging produces a deep narrow U-shaped groove over a relatively short length. The process is ideally suited to

removal of localised areas such as isolated weld imperfections. Experienced operators are able to observe any imperfections during gouging. These appear as dark or light spots/streaks within the molten pool (reaction zone).

Back-step gouging Once the material has reached ignition temperature, the oxygen stream is introduced and the torch moved in a backward movement for a distance of 15-20mm. The oxygen is shut off and the torch moved forward a distance of 25-30mm before restarting the gouging operation. This technique is favoured for removal of local imperfections which may be deeply embedded in the base plate.

. 1) TLV-TWA. This is known as the Time Weighted Average. It is the concentrationof vapour-in-air which may be experienced for an eight-hour day or 40-hourweek throughout a person's working life. It is the most commonly quoted TLV.It shows the smallest concentration (in comparison to (2) and (3) below) (2) TLV-STEL. This is known as the Short Term Exposure Limit. It is the maximumconcentration of vapour-in-air allowable for a period of up to 15 minutesprovided there are no more than four exposures per day and at least one hourbetween each. It is always greater than (1) above but is not given for allvapours. (3) TLV-C. This is what is known as the Ceiling concentration of the vapour-in-airwhich should never be exceeded. Only those substances which arepredominantly fast-acting are given a TLV-C.

ICCP Systems work by taking the ships power, converting it using as a transformer rectifier unit into direct current and impressing this on to the hull through inert anodes strategically positioned on the hull. The current will flow from the inert anodes through the sea water and back to the hull. This is ensured by a sufficiently large dielectric coating applied on the hull around the anode. ICCP Systems are generally self-regulating using a feedback control system. This is done by positioning suitable Reference Electrodes at various points on the structure to measure the potential of the structure at those points. By comparing the measured potential with the desired non-corroding structure potential, the control unit of the ICCP System determines whether the current feed to the hull through the anodes should be increased, decreased or maintained. The objective is to ensure that the potential of the structure as measured by the Reference Electrodes is as close to the desired protection potential as possible 1.what is bulk carrier stability reqiurement? that is chapt-12 of solas....explained nicely. 2.wht type of life-boat was there on ur ship?(enclosed type--wht fire fighting arrangement provided on it?explain.......),lowering procedure........ if u r at fwd...side of ship n there is a fire, such that u can can not come aft wht will u do? 3. ism code amendments in detail............ 4.wht is GM ? explain.....its significance.....wht happens.....if it is more? 5.stcw......amendments. 6.SOPEP............wht was ur duty in that.........explain Master's over-riding authority related to sopep. 1) average weight of a person has increased from 75kg to 82.5kg.... 2)all bulk carriers to hav freefall lifeboat compulsary....3)ETA(emergncy towing appliance ) for all ships.. lifeboat on load release mechanism not complying new international LSA code requirement to be replaced no later than 1st sheduled d/docking of ship after 1 july in any case not later than 1 july 2019 24th June 2011 DGS Mr Mehotra and Mr Dataar Only Daatar sir took oral Fn 3 - Port state inspection - ans: seaworthiness check - ISM code, amendments, MNC - marpol Annex 6, is tier 2 applicable right now, yes - If u don't have low sulphur fuel onboard, can u enter ECA area.

When repairs, thorough servicing and annual servicing are completed, a statement confirming that the lifeboat arrangements remain fit for purpose should be issued by the manufacturers representative Manufacturer without attendance of authorized surveyor or Personnel appropriately trained and certified by manufacturer without attendance of authorized surveyor or Service personnel trained by some other reputed and approved manufacturer in the presence of authorized surveyor. Workshop carrying out the test / servicing in India to be registered with the Directorate. If Lifeboat/Rescue boat wire falls are replaced while the vessel is in India, the wire falls used for replacement should be approved by Mercantile Marine Department (MMD). If wire falls are replaced while the vessel is overseas, the falls should be approved by a member of International Association of Classification Society (IACS), subject to the condition that it complies with the applicable IMO standards. Release Gear The following should be examined for satisfactory condition and operation: operation of devices for activation of release gear: excessive free play (tolerances); hydrostatic interlock system, where fitted; Cables for control and release; and Hook fastening. Davit The following items should be examined for satisfactory condition and operation: davit structure, in particular with regard to corrosion, misalignments, deformations and excessive free play; wires and sheaves, possible damages such as kinks and corrosion; lubrication of wires, sheaves and moving parts; functioning of limit switches; stored power systems; and hydraulic systems. Winch The following items should be examined for satisfactory condition and operation: open and inspect brake mechanism; replace brake pads, if necessary; remote control system; and power supply system. DYNAMIC WINCH BRAKE TEST Annual operational testing should preferably be done by lowering the empty boat. When the boat has reached its maximum lowering speed and boat enters the water, the brake should be abruptly applied. Five-yearly operational testing should be done by lowering the boat loaded to a proof load of 1.1 times the maximum working load of the winch, or equivalent load. When the boat has reached its maximum lowering speed and before the boat enters the water, the brake should be abruptly applied. OVERHAUL OF ON-LOAD RELEASE GEAR dismantling of hook release units; examination with regard to tolerances and design requirements; adjustment of release gear system after assembly; operational test as per above and with a load according to SOLAS regulation III/20.11.2.3; and Examination of vital parts with regard to defects and cracks.. Test of fire fighting equipments. Fire Fighting Equipments including portable fire extinguishers that exists while the ship is being registered under Indian flag are required to have documentary evidence of having approval of Administration or classification society, who is a member of the IACS and the fire fighting equipment is approved in accordance with the relevant provision of the SOLAS 74 as amended and relevant provision of the FSS Code and applicable IMO Assembly Resolution All fire extinguishers are required to have 100 % spare charges; Shipping companies are required to ensure that the refill of the same make is available on board ship Shipping companies are not able to comply with the requirement of getting one third of the fire extinguishers pressure tested every year. In order to facilitate shipping companies, it has been decided that fire extinguishers may be hydraulically pressure tested during the dry dock once in three years. However, shipping companies are required to ensure that the ships fire extinguishers are properly maintained and kept in satisfactory operating condition at all times Weekly testing and inspections all public address systems and general alarm systems are functioning properly; and Breathing apparatus cylinders do not present leakages. Monthly testing and inspections all firemans outfits, fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, hose and nozzles are in place, properly arranged, and are in

proper condition; all fixed fire-fighting system stop valves are in the proper open or closed position, dry pipe sprinkler systems have appropriate pressures as indicated by gauges; sprinkler system pressure tanks have correct levels of water as indicated by glass gauges; all sprinkler system pumps automatically operate on reduction of pressure in the systems; all fire pumps are operated; and all fixed fire-extinguishing installation using extinguishing gas are free from leakage. Quarterly testing and inspections all automatic alarms for the sprinkler system are tested using the test valves for each section; the international shore connection is in proper condition; lockers providing storage for fire-fighting equipment contain proper inventory and equipment is in-proper condition; all fire doors and fire dampers are tested for local operation; and all CO2 bottle connections for cable operating system clips should be checked for tightness on fixed fire-extinguishing installations. Annual testing and inspections all fire extinguishers are checked for proper location, charging pressure and condition; fire detection systems are tested for proper operation, as appropriate; all fire doors and dampers are tested for remote operation; all foamwater and water-spray fixed fire-fighting systems are tested for operation; all foam-water and water-spray fixed firefighting systems are tested for operation; all accessible components of fixed fire-fighting system are visually inspected for proper condition; all fire pumps, including sprinkler system pumps, are flow tested for proper pressures and flows; all hydrants are tested for operation; all antifreeze systems are tested for proper solution; sprinkler system connections from the ship?s fire main are tested for operation. all fire hoses are hydrostatically tested; breathing apparatus air recharging systems checked for air quality; control valves of fixed fir-fighting system should be inspected; and air should be blown through the piping of extinguishing gas systems. Five-year service hydrostatic testing for all SCBA?s cylinders; and control valves of fixed fire- fighting systems should be internally inspected. . If the LSA is of Indian make, the "type approval" shall be granted in accordance with M.S. (LSA) Rules. Application shall be forwarded and thereafter tests will be carried out by the nearest Mercantile Marine Department surveyors. Based on satisfactory compliance with the applicable IMO standards an approval for a period of 5 years shall be granted If the LSA is of foreign make, the applicant will be required to submit necessary authenticated document to the Nautical Adviser for scrutiny and consideration for issue of Letter of Acceptance for that appliance No replacement or substitution shall be permitted. The life rafts of foreign make to which acceptance letter has been issued shall be put up for inspection by the MMD for functional test and necessary certificate shall be issued by the MMD on direction of DGS before the same is placed on board Indian ships Letter of Acceptance as mentioned in para (c) shall be issued for a limited period, maximum of 5 years subject to intermediate verification of 2 1/2 year + 3 months. The foreign manufactures of LSA, who seek "Letter of Acceptance", shall clearly nominate only one representative in India who shall be responsible for such equipments. . LSA service stations where inflatable LSA are periodically serviced must have approval from the Directorate General of Shipping. For self certification, the servicing of Life raft shall be carried out at Service Station approved by D.G. Shipping. Such approved Service Station should also have necessary approval from the manufacturer. In all other cases the servicing may be carried out in the presence of a surveyor from the Mercantile Marine Department. Other inflatable LSA of foreign-make will be serviced in the presence of a surveyor from the Mercantile Marine Department. The life raft of the Indian manufacture shall not be serviced by any other service station unless until such service station has an authorization from manufacturer. In such cases, the servicing of the life raft shall be done under the supervision of MMD surveyor. In the cases where the Indian manufacturer has not authorised any service station for servicing of his life raft in any Indian port, the servicing in such port can be undertaken by any service station as per the customers wish under

the supervision of MMD surveyor. The purpose of a Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) and Simplified Voyage Data Recorder (S-VDR) is to maintain and store (in a secure and retrievable form) information concerning the position, movement, physical status, command and control of a vessel over the period leading upto and following an incident / casualty. The information contained in the VDR / S-VDR is to be retrieved and used during the subsequent investigation. For a vessel operating in shallow waters, cost of recovery of fixed VDR recording medium may not be very expensive. However, in case a vessel is lost in deep waters, the cost of recovery of the recording medium may be prohibitive and at times not feasible at all. In view of the foregoing, it has been decided that all Indian ships shall install the float-free variety of the VDR / S-VDR. However, if the shipowner has already installed the fixed type of VDR or it is not possible to install the float-free VDR meeting full requirements of the IMO Resolution, they shall ensure that an additional float-free arrangement may be made to retrieve the following information: Operators should periodically check the condition of igniters and flame scanners, to ensure that they are in good working order, Automatic fuel oil shut offs should, as a routine, be tested to ensure that the fuel valves operate efficiently for fault conditions (e.g. flame failure and combustion air failure). Burners should be lit with fuel oil at the minimum firing rate compatible with flame establishment and operators should not attempt to light a burner immediately after its flame failure. Whenever any machinery is required to be operated on emergency mode, Chief Engineer Officer must be informed, who in turn must give specific instructions for such an operation and take immediate steps to restore the normal mode. Particular attention is drawn to the need to purge the furnace and gas passages with air following flame failure or ignition failure however short the period of failure or prior to any lighting up operation. The sensors should be capable of being located either in the aft part of each cargo hold or in the lowest part of the spaces other than cargo holds to which these requirements apply. The systems of detecting water level should be capable of continuous operation while the ship is at sea. An alarm, both visual and audible, activated when the level of water at the sensor reaches the main alarm level, an alarm both visual and audible must be activated indicating increasing water level in a cargo hold. The indication should identify the space and the audible alarm should not be the same as that for the per-alarm level. For compartments other than cargo holds: An alarm both visual and audible, indicating the presence of water in a compartment other than a cargo hold when the level of water in the space being monitored reaches sensor. The visual and audible characteristics of the alarm indication should be the same as those for the main alarm level in a hold space.The detector indicating the water level should be capable of activating to an accuracy of + 100 mm. The part of the system which has circuitry in the cargo area should be intrinsically safe The visual indication should be capable of remaining visible until the condition activating it has returned below the level of the relevant sensor. The visual indication should not be capable of being extinguished by the operator. The audible indication should be capable of being muted by the operator. Time delays may be incorporated into the alarm system to prevent spurious alarms due to sloshing effects associated with ship motions.Overriding indication and alarms for the detection systems installed only in tanks and holds that have been designed for carriage of water ballast. Cancellation of the override condition and reactivation of the alarm should automatically occur after the hold or tank has been de-ballasted to a level below the lowest alarm indicator level. The water level detector system should be capable of being supplied with electrical power from two independent electrical supplies. Failure of the primary electrical power supply should be indicated by an alarm.

SSAS what and how ? The SSAS should be documented in the Ship Security Plan. The location of activation points should be specified in the plan and may form a part of the Confidential Section of the plan. It is advised that such information shall be known to the Master, Ship Security Officer and other ship personnel as may be decided by the Master and the SSO. The dedicated equipment used for transmission of Security Alert should not be used for any other routine communication. The system should have the main source of electrical power and a backup source, which may include emergency source or independent supply. However, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or such similar device may also be considered as an alternate source of power. All Indian Ship owners, Company Security Officers, Masters and others concerned may please note that the SSAS test is to be carried out in the "LIVE" mode only. How to test SSAS? The standard procedure for testing of Ship Security Alert System is as follows: 1. E-mail DG Commcentre the following information at least three hours in advance when requesting for a test : a) Name of the vessel and its present position b) Intended date and time (UTC) and IST of the test. 2. The DG Commcentre will acknowledge confirming the conduct of the test. It may be noted that SSAS tests with other ship/s may have already been scheduled at the proposed time, in which case, the DG Commcentre would advise the earliest suitable time for the conduct of the test. 3. The ship staff may then carry out the SSAS test as per schedule, first from Location 1. 4. The CSO/ Master shall confirm by phone whether the Alert has been received by DG Comm centre. DG Comm centre will then advise if all details provided in the alert are correct, or otherwise. 5. If all details received are correct, DG Comm centre will advise to reset the alert and then proceed to test from Location 2 6. When testing from Location 2, WAIT FOR about 30 minutes for alert to go to Level 3. 7. Call DG Comm centre to confirm whether alert Level 3 has been received. 8. DG Comm centre will confirm whether all is OK, or otherwise. If all is OK, DG Comm centre will advise the CSO/ Master to reset the system. 9. After resetting the system, the CSO/ Master to send an email to DG Comm centre stating that the "SSAS test has been completed and all subsequent alerts may be treated as true alerts." Request for compliance may be made immediately upon satisfactory completion of the test, and not after several days, 10. Comm centre will then revert compliance by email if tests were OK or advise further testing/ rectification, as required. EEDI Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) 62nd session: 11 to 15 July 2011 Mandatory energy efficiency measures for international shipping adopted at IMO environment meeting Mandatory measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) frominternational shipping were adopted by Parties to MARPOL Annex VI represented in the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), when it met for its 62nd session from 11 to 15 July 2011 at IMO Headquarters in London, representing the first ever mandatory global greenhouse gas reduction regime for an international industry sector. The amendments to MARPOL Annex VI Regulations for the prevention of air pollution from ships, add a new chapter 4 to Annex VI on Regulations on energy efficiency for ships to make mandatory the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), for new ships, and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all ships. Other amendments to Annex VI add new definitions and the requirements for survey and certification, including the format for

theInternational Energy Efficiency Certificate. The regulations apply to all ships of 400 gross tonnage and above and are expected to enter into force on 1 January 2013. However, under regulation 19, the Administration may waive the requirement for new ships of 400 gross tonnage and above from complying with the EEDI requirements. This waiver may not be applied to ships above 400 gross tonnage for which the building contract is placed four years after the entry into force date of chapter 4; the keel of which is laid or which is at a similar stage of construction four years and six months after the entry into force; the delivery of which is after six years and six months after the entry into force; or in cases of the major conversion of a new or existing ship, four years after the entry into force date. The EEDI is a non-prescriptive, performance-based mechanism that leaves the choice of technologies to use in a specific ship design to the industry. As long as the required energy-efficiency level is attained, ship designers and builders would be free to use the most cost-efficient solutions for the ship to comply with the regulations.

The SEEMP establishes a mechanism for operators to improve the energy efficiency of ships. Promotion of technical co-operation The new chapter includes a regulation on Promotion of technical co-operation and transfer of technology relating to the improvement of energy efficiency of ships, which requires Administrations, in co-operation with IMO and other international bodies, to promote and provide, as appropriate, support directly or through IMO to States, especially developing States, that request technical assistance. It also requires the Administration of a Party to co-operate actively with other Parties, subject to its national laws, regulations and policies, to promote the development and transfer of technology and exchange of information to States, which request technical assistance, particularly developing States, in respect ofthe implementation of measures to fulfil the requirements of Chapter 4. Work plan agreed The MEPC agreed a work plan to continue the work on energy efficiency measures for ships, to include the development of the EEDI framework for ship types and sizes, and propulsion systems, not covered by the current EEDI requirements and the development of EEDI and SEEMP-related guidelines. Commenting at the close of the session, on the outcome of MEPC, IMO Secretary-General Efthimios E. Mitropoulos expressed satisfaction at the many and various significant achievements with which the session should be credited. Although not by consensus which of course would be the ideal outcome the Committee has now adopted amendments to MARPOL Annex VI introducing mandatory technical and operational measures for the energy efficiency of ships. Let us hope that the work to follow on these issues will enable all Members to build the consensus that evaded the Committee this time, he said. Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) 62nd session: 11 to 15 July 2011 IMO environment meeting completes packed agenda IMO adopted amendments to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) to designate the United States Caribbean Sea as a new emission control area (ECA); to designate the Baltic Sea as a Special Area with respect to pollution by sewage from ships; and to adopt a revised Annex V related to the control of garbage, at the 62nd session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), which met from 11 to 15 July

2011 at the IMO Headquarters in London. IMO also adopted mandatory measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from international shipping (see press briefing 42/2011 http://www.imo.org/MediaCentre/PressBriefings/Pages/42-mepc-ghg.aspx ). The MEPC also designated the Strait of Bonifacio as a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) and adopted the firstever international recommendations toaddress biofouling of ships, to minimize the transfer of aquatic species. In other matters, the MEPC approved a number of ballast water management systems and adopted guidelines related to the implementation of both the ballast water management and ship recycling Conventions.

Energy efficiency measures adopted Mandatory measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from international shipping were adopted by Parties to MARPOL Annex VI represented in the MEPC (see Briefing 42/2011 http://www.imo.org/Med iaCentre/PressBriefings/Pages/42-mepc-ghg.aspx). The MEPC agreed to the terms of reference for an intersessional working group on energy efficiency measures for ships, scheduled to take place in February/March 2012, tasked with: further improving, with a view to finalization at MEPC 63, draft Guidelines on the method of calculation of the EEDI for new ships; draft Guidelines for the development of a SEEMP; draft Guidelines on Survey and Certification of the EEDI; and draft interim Guidelines for determining minimum propulsion power and speed to enable safe manoeuvring in adverse weather conditions; considering the development of EEDI frameworks for other ship types and propulsion systems not covered by the draft Guidelines on the method of calculation of the EEDI for new ships; identifying the necessity of other guidelines or supporting documents for technical and operational measures; considering the EEDI reduction rates for larger tankers and bulk carriers; and considering the improvement of the guidelines on the Ship Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI) (MEPC.1/Circ.684). United States Caribbean Emission Control Area adopted Following approval at its last session, the MEPC adopted MARPOL amendments to designate certain waters adjacent to the coasts of Puerto Rico (United States) and the Virgin Islands (United States) as an ECA for the control of emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulphur oxides (SOX), and particulate matter under MARPOL Annex VI Regulations for the prevention of air pollution from ships. Another amendment will make old steamships exempt from the requirements on sulphur relating to both the North American and United States Caribbean Sea ECAs. The MARPOL amendments are expected to enter into force on 1 January 2013, with the new ECA taking effect 12 months later. Currently, there are two designated ECAs in force under Annex VI, the Baltic Sea area and the North Sea area, while a third, the North American ECA, which was adopted in March 2010 with entry into force in August 2011, will take effect in August 2012. Other Annex VI issues The MEPC adopted Guidelines for reception facilities under MARPOL Annex VI and Guidelines addressing additional aspects to the NOx Technical Code 2008 with regard to particular requirements related to marine diesel engines fitted with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems. The MEPC approved, for future adoption, draft amendments to the NOxTechnical Code 2008, relating to engines not pre-certified on a test bed and toNOx-reducing devices. It also agreed terms of reference for the review of the status

of technological developments to implement the Tier III NOx emission standard. Black Carbon measures to be further considered The MEPC agreed a work plan on addressing the impact in the Arctic of Black Carbon emissions from ships and instructed the Sub-Committee on Bulk Liquids and Gases (BLG) to: develop a definition for Black Carbon emissions from international shipping; consider measurement methods for Black Carbon and identify the most appropriate method for measuring Black Carbon emissions from international shipping; investigate appropriate control measures to reduce the impacts of Black Carbon emissions from international shipping in the Arctic; and submit a final report to MEPC 65 (in 2014). Black Carbon is a strongly light-absorbing carbonaceous aerosol produced by incomplete combustion of fuel oil and is considered a constituent of primary particulate matter, as distinguished from secondary particulate matter pollutants formed in the atmosphere from sulphur dioxide emissions. In addition to harmful human health effects associated with exposure to particulate matter, Black Carbon has effects on climate change. When deposited on snow and ice in the Arctic and lower latitudes, it darkens light surfaces and absorbs energy, causing snow and ice to melt. Annex IV (Sewage) Baltic Special Area adopted The MEPC adopted amendments to MARPOL Annex IV Prevention of pollution by sewage from ships to include the possibility of establishing Special Areas for the prevention of such pollution from passenger ships and to designate the Baltic Sea as a Special Area under this Annex. The amendments are expected to enter into force on 1 January 2013. Revised Annex V (garbage) adopted The MEPC adopted the revised MARPOL Annex V Regulations for the prevention of pollution by garbage from ships, which has been developed following a comprehensive review to bring the Annex up to date. The amendments are expected to enter into force on 1 January 2013. The main changes include the updating of definitions; the inclusion of a new requirement specifying that discharge of all garbage into the sea is prohibited, except as expressly provided otherwise (the discharges permitted in certain circumstances include food wastes, cargo residues and water used for washing deck and external surfaces containing cleaning agents or additives which are not harmful to the marine environment); expansion of the requirements for placards and garbage management plans to fixed and floating platforms engaged in exploration and exploitation of the sea-bed; and the addition of discharge requirements covering animal carcasses. PSSA for Strait of Bonifacio designated The MEPC agreed to designate the Strait of Bonifacio as a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA), following its approval in principle at the last session, and consideration of associated protective measures by the Sub-Committee on Safety of Navigation (NAV) in June 2011. The MEPC also agreed, in principle, to designate the Saba Bank in the Caribbean Sea as a PSSA, noting that the Netherlands would submit detailed proposals for associated protective measures to the NAV Sub-Committee, which would provide recommendations to the Committee with a view to final designation of the PSSA at MEPC 64 in October 2012. Biofouling guidelines adopted The MEPC adopted the first set of international recommendations to address biofouling of ships, to minimize the transfer of aquatic species. The Guidelines for the control and management of ships' biofouling to minimize the transfer of invasive aquatic species will address the risks of introduction of invasive aquatic species through the adherence of sealife, such as algae and molluscs, to ships hulls. Research indicates that biofouling is a significant mechanism for species transfer by vessels. A single fertile fouling organism has the potential to release many thousands of eggs, spores or larvae into the water with the capacity to

found new populations of invasive species such as crabs, fish, sea stars, molluscs and plankton. Minimizing biofouling will significantly reduce the risk of transfer. Guidelines on recycling of ships adopted The MEPC adopted the 2011 Guidelines for the development of the Ship Recycling Plan as well as updated Guidelines for the development of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials, which are intended to assist in the implementation of the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, adopted in May 2009. The Committee encouraged Governments to ratify the Convention, which has been signed, subject to ratification, by five countries, and to review the programme of technical assistance aimed at supporting its early implementation. Ballast water management systems approved The MEPC granted final approval to two and basic approval to seven ballast water management systems that make use of active substances, following the recommendations of the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth meetings of the Joint Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Environment Protection (GESAMP) Ballast Water Working Group, which met in December 2010, February/March and May 2011, respectively. The MEPC also adopted the Procedure for approving other methods of ballast water management in accordance with regulation B-3.7 of the Ballast Water Management Convention, which will open the door for new methods and concepts to prevent risks arising from the transfer of invasive species, provided that such methods will ensure at least the same level of protection of the environment as set out in the Convention and are approved in principle by the MEPC. Guidance on scaling of ballast water management systems was also approved. The MEPC reiterated the need for countries to ratify the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004, to achieve its entry into force at the earliest opportunity. To date, 28 States, with an aggregate merchant shipping tonnage of 26.37 per cent of the world total, have ratified the Convention. The Convention will enter into force twelve months after the date on which not fewer than 30 States, the combined merchant fleets of which constitute not less than 35 percent of the gross tonnage of the worlds merchant shipping, have become Parties to it. Guidelines for the carriage of blends of petroleum oil and bio-fuels approved The MEPC approved Guidelines for the carriage of blends of petroleum oil and bio-fuels, which set out carriage and discharge requirements for bio-fuel blends containing 75% or more of petroleum oil (they are subject to Annex I of MARPOL); bio-fuel blends containing more than 1% but less than 75% of petroleum oil (subject to Annex II of MARPOL); and bio-fuel blends containing 1% or less petroleum oil (also subject to Annex II of MARPOL). FSA environmental risk evaluation criteria endorsed The MEPC endorsed environmental risk evaluation criteria, for inclusion in theGuidelines for Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) for use in the IMO rule-making process, subject to approval by the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC). Implementation of the OPRC Convention and OPRC-HNS Protocol The MEPC also discussed the report of the OPRC-HNS Technical Group, which met for its twelfth meeting the week prior to the MEPC session to progress several matters, including the development of guidelines and manuals, on marine pollution preparedness and response.

1) TLV-TWA. This is known as the Time Weighted Average. It is the concentrationof vapour-in-air which may be experienced for an eight-hour day or 40-hourweek throughout a person's working life. It is the most commonly quoted TLV.It shows t...he smallest concentration (in comparison to (2) and (3) below) (2) TLV-STEL. This is known as the Short Term Exposure Limit. It is the maximumconcentration of vapour-in-air allowable for a period of up to 15 minutesprovided there are no more than four exposures per day and at least one hourbetween each. It is always greater than (1) above but is not given for allvapours. (3) TLV-C. This is what is known as the Ceiling concentration of the vapour-in-airwhich should never be exceeded. Only those substances which arepredominantly fast-acting are given a TLV-C. Of the main liquefied gases onlythe more toxic products, such as ammonia and chlorine, have been ascribedsuch a figure. 3.

(c ) 15 yearly routines: (i) The piping must be pressure tested as follows: 1) The high pressure section up to and including the engine room, boiler room or pump room stopcock and up to and including the operating valves or cocks to the cargo holds: At a pressure of at least 190 kgf/cm2 using a suitable liquid. 2) The medium pressure section (open ended pipes where they run through accommodation spaces, together with the section of the main supply line running to the engine room, boiler room or pump room between the stopcock and the room concerned): At a pressure of at least 80 kgf/cm2 using a suitable liquid. 3) Low pressure section (other pipes with open ends): With air at a pressure of at least 6 kgf /cm2 Pipes running from the pilot cylinders to the servo-cylinders and the sections of pipes to deep tanks, which can be shut off, must be considered as part of the high-pressure system. Pipe sections and valves tested hydraulically with water must be blown dry with air. (ii) The servo-cylinders and any remote-controlled stopcocks to be tested by opening 1 pilot cylinder. The battery must be uncoupled for the purpose; (iii) The alarm system to be tested with the engine operating to full capacity; (iv) The setting of the spring loaded safety valves at 180 kgf/cm2 . (v) The proper operation and correct connections to the cargo holds to be checked (vi) The free flow of carbon dioxide out of the nozzles into the engine room, boiler room or pump room to be checked by opening one or more cylinders of the battery or by using air at a minimum pressure of 25 kgf/cm2;

(vii) The entire installation to be checked to make sure that it operational. The high-pressure section that can be shut off, the stopcocks and the controls to be checked for tightness under operational conditions by opening one cylinder of the battery. This check may be omitted if the equipment is intended solely for the engine room and consists of not more than 15 cylinders. (d) Periodical Tests When extensive repairs or modifications are carried out, the part of the carbon dioxide fire extinguishing equipment involved must be subjected to the tests described in 15 yearly routines above, in so far as they are applicable. (e) Inspections: At intervals of 24 months the whole installation must be inspected externally to the extent that this is possible and blown through with air. Before servicing shipping companies /service stations will apply to the respective MMD regarding carrying out the periodical pressure testing of the CO2 system. The surveyors are required to witness the hydraulic pressure testing. The servicing of CO2 systems shall be carried out by the DGS approved service stations/ Approved by Maritime Administration only. 4. Periodical Inspection of Carbon Dioxide Cylinders (a) Each carbon dioxide cylinder must be inspected internally at intervals of 10 years and tested at the prescribed pressure. After 20 years the cylinders should be examined and tested at intervals of 5 years. The date of testing and stamp must be placed on the cylinder. (b) Carbon dioxide cylinders, which exhibit a permanent increase in volume after being pressure tested, must be condemned. (c) Before refilling the riser tube must be inspected visually. (d) The valve must also be tested for gas-tightness and if appropriate ensure that it is movable. (e) Statement must be issued by the filling station to the effect that each cylinder is filled with the prescribed quantity of carbon -dioxide. Before servicing Shipping Companies /service stations will inform/apply to the respective MMD regarding carrying out hydraulic testing of cylinders. The servicing of CO2 bottles shall be carried out by the DGS approved service stations only. The Chief Engineer of the approved service station shall witness the hydraulic pressure testing and endorse the certificate, and submit a copy to MMD. The surveyors are required to witness the hydraulic pressure testing in case the service station is not approved by DGS. 5. Periodical check of the Gas Content of Carbon Dioxide Cylinders (a) The gas content of such carbon dioxide cylinder must be checked at intervals of not more than 2 years by weighing or in some other manner, a maximum weight reduction of 5 per cent may be allowed, provided the total quantity of carbon dioxide is never less than the prescribed minimum. (b) Equipment for weighing each cylinder must be available on board. If a level detector employing radioactive radiation is used to deck check the cylinders, this equipment must be removed from the ship before sailing. The approved servicing station shall undertake the weighment of the CO2 cylinders only. The company/service stations are required to submit an application to MMD, and the same is to be witnessed by the surveyor of the department and certificate of weighment endorsed. In case of non-availability of surveyor, Principal Officer may allow the servicing station to carry out the weighment of the cylinders. In such cases the endorsement shall not be done by the MMD, however during the safety equipment survey, the Company shall have the certificate of weighment endorsed by the attending surveyor. Prior to endorsement of the weighment certificate, surveyor may carry out weighment of CO2 bottles on sample basis to his satisfaction. To avoid duplication of the work, company may plan the weighment during the annual/renewal of safety equipment survey. All service stations that are registered with Directorate General of Shipping are required to follow the above procedure.

Interference from other echo-sounders On Displacement Hulls: Carefully study the shape of the hull to determine the best transducer mounting location where; The transducer is away from the propeller and other sources of vessel generated noise. The water is smoothest with a minimum of turbulence and bubbles. 1. Locate the transducer about 1/3 aft LWL. Generally, this provides the best compromise between obtaining aeration-free water away from the bow and minimizing propeller noise.

2. Water near the keel can be quite aerated. Mounting it away from the keel can minimize interference with the transducer. Also, the deeper the transducer protrudes into the water, the less aeration. 3. Mount the transducer on the side of the hull where the propeller is moving downward. The upward motion of the propeller generates pressure waves and pushes bubbles up against the hull. By mounting on the downward side, the hull shades the transducer from this effect. Caution: Do not mount the sensor in an area of turbulence or bubbles: Near water intake or discharge openings. Behind strakes, fittings or hull irregularities. Near the keel Behind eroding paint (an indication of turbulence) INERT GAS SAFETY SYSTEM AS PER FSS CHAPTER 15 INERT GAS SYSTEM......TRIPS AND ALARMS 2.3.1.5.1-automatic shut down of inert gas blowers and gas regulating valve shall be arranged on predetermined limits being reached in respect of paragraph 2.4.3.1.1,2.4.3.1.2,2.4.3.1.3 2.4.3-Audible and visual alarms 2.4.3.1.1-Low water pressure or low water flow rate to the flue gas scrubber 2.4.3.1.2-High water level in flue gas scrubber 2.4.3.1.3-High gas temperature as refered to in paragraph 2.4.1(----2.4.1-Means shall be provided for continuously indicating the temperature and pressure of inert gas at the discharge side of gas blowers,whenever the gas blowers are operating) 2.3.1.5.2-Automatic shut down of gas regulating valve shall be arranged in respect of paragraph 2.4.3.1.4 2.4.3.1.4-Failure of inert gas blowers 2.4.3.1.5-Oxygen content in excess of 8% by volume in the inert gas supply mains on the discharge side of gas blowers 2.4.3.1.6-Failure of power supply to automatic control system for the gas regulating valve and to the indicating devices(instrument measuring inert gas pressure placed at forward of non return devices and oxygen content) 2.4.3.1.7-Low water level in water seal(i.e deck seal and additional non return device located between the automatic valve and aftermost connection to any cargo tank or cargo pipeline) 2.4.3.1.8-Gas pressure less than 100mm water gauge(when measured from ig supply mains forward of non return devices).The alarm arrangement shall be such as to ensure that the pressure in slop tank in combination carriers can be monitored at all times 2.4.3.1.9-High gas pressure(when measured from ig supply mains forward of non return devices) The alarms mentioned in 2.4.3.1.5,2.4.3.1.6 and 2.4.3.1.8 shall be fitted in machinary space and cargo control room

CATFINES? values? who decides these values?why are they there? 4. CO2 bottle measurement? will you get an exact figure? if not then why? 5. Harmonisation survey?

rudder plug testing:

one would b the hydrostatic pr test of rudder given in saiftole and the other one is giving the same amount of pr by air as in head equavalent as filling up would take a lot of time n as per him u r abt to leave the dock! this is given in dj eyers aft structure wala chapter.. for exact words pls refer that.. heavy wheather ballast tanks are usually tanks on the midship area of the ship which are filled in case of heavy wheather in ballast condition to give more stability to the vessel they are placed so as by filling them there would not b a trim/list caused n whatever effect it will have it would help go keep the propellor submerged... they being used as heavy wheather ballast tanks would additional strengthening members as they are subjected to

water head. also they have pumping arrangement along with vents provided plus the water ingress detection alarm system can be bypassed in this tank also they would have anti corrosion paint coating on them.. this is what i told him n he was convinced. co2 measurement his cross question was will u get an accurate reading with the gauging method? no., it would be temp dependent n hence would get an incorrect reading if the temp is more than 32deg. so cool the room n bring the temp down before carrying out the level check... by means - of a portable ac.. i just couldnt think anything else .. n he was convinced n went on with this story when he was a chief :P

tig - tungsten not consumable, feed wire if any is consumable, inert gas is consumable plus holder is water cooled, for non ferrous metals high finish quality source of power high freq power source.. value of current dont remember..

In theory, magnetic particle inspection (MPI) is a relatively simple concept. It can be considered as a combination of two nondestructive testing methods: magnetic flux leakage testing and visual testing. Consider the case of a bar magnet. It has a magnetic field in and around the magnet. Any place that a magnetic line of force exits or enters the magnet is called a pole. A pole where a magnetic line of force exits the magnet is called a north pole and a pole where a line of force enters the magnet is called a south pole. When a bar magnet is broken in the center of its length, two complete bar magnets with magnetic poles on each end of each piece will result. If the magnet is just cracked but not broken completely in two, a north and south pole will form at each edge of the crack. The magnetic field exits the north pole and reenters at the south pole. The magnetic field spreads out when it encounters the small air gap created by the crack because the air cannot support as much magnetic field per unit volume as the magnet can. When the field spreads out, it appears to leak out of the material and, thus is called a flux leakage field. bakopadhaya

2. Stern tube sealing-explained about rubber seals and chrome liner. Asked about the material, said nitrile rubber or perbunan S. Liner fitting arrangements, told him, in the forwrd end it is fitted by means of a dummy flange and aft, it is bolted to the propeller hub. dual class ships r the once which are certified by one than one classification society. Used to be the case for Indian ships, Irs and some foreign class. Before IRS was not issuing the load line certificate, so the Government(flag state) wud decide whom to assign the duty of issuing the load line certificate Abt the alternate load line, used mostly on timber carriers. When they carry a differernt cargo there is a vast difference in the load lines so the ship tends to lose a lot on the cargo, to avoid this alternate load line or 2 plimsoll markings are cavitation: wen the vapor pressure of a liquid falls below the atm pr, there is bubble formation. wen these bubble travel to region of higher pressure, the bubbles explode leading to formation of a wave. this causes errosion of metal parts. seen in propeller blades, mostly on the trailing edge.
