The Effect Of The 1978 IMCO Tanker Safety And Pollution Prevention Conference On Ship Design And Operation
Maclver Robinson, OBE CEng FRINA, Surveyor General, Marine Division, Department of Trade, will chair a Joint Conference on "The Effect of the 1978 IMCO Tanker Safety and Pollution Prevention Conference on Ship Design and Operation," arranged by The Royal Institution of Naval Architects and The Institute of Marine Engineers, December 7, 1978, at the Institute Conference Centre, 76 Mark Lane, London EC3R 7JN, to discuss problems facing shipowners resulting from the IMCO Conference involving ship design and operation, safety, pollution prevention, segregated ballast, cargo pumping systems, crude oil washing, steering gear, the structural design of ships, inspection and certification.
Seven papers will be presented, and an informative debate is anticipated.
Paper No. 1—"An Introduction to the New Measures and Procedures," by Dr. J. Cowley, CEng FIMarE, Engineer Surveyor in Chief, Marine Division, Department of Trade.
The new measures and procedures agreed at the 1978 IMCO Conference will be considered under three main headings: Design and Equipment; Inspection and Certification, and Procedural Arrangements.
Paper No. 2—"Design Considerations of New Oil Tankers," by F.H. Atkinson, CEng FRINA of Lloyd's Register of Shipping.
The effect of the new regulations on tanker design involving the optimization of t r a n s v e r s e and longitudinal bulkhead positioning to comply with segregated ballast and protective location requirements.
The stability and oil outflow aspects will be considered together with the effect, if any, of the crude oil washing requirements on structural design.
Paper No. 3 — "Some Suggestions on the Design Implications and the Sub Division of Ships," by authors from the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, The University, Glasgow, (to be confirmed).
Paper No. 4—"The Views of an Individual Owner on the Implications of the T.S.P.P.," by Capt.
G.A. Marchant, Support Services Manager, P & O Bulk Shipping Ltd.
A ship o p e r a t o r ' s views on T.S.P.P. Conference details, problems with existing and new ships, pros and cons of crude oil washing, crew training, collision avoidance aids and steering standards.

Paper No. 5 — "The Effect of the New Regulations on Existing Ships," by A.F. Brereton, CEng FRINA, Group Technical Director, Shipping Management S.A.M.
The author will concentrate on the design and modification aspects of the new regulations.
Paper No. 6—"Safety Aspects of Ships' Steering Gear," by W.
Ovens, CEng FIMarE, Managing Director, John Hastie of Greenock Ltd.
The author will cover existing steering gear and control systems ; modifications to reduce risk of hydraulic failure; proposals for new systems in high risk ships and cost estimates of the modifications required.
Paper No. 7 — "Pumping Systems for Product and Oil Tankers to Reduce Risk of Pollution," by Marit M. Westlake, MSc CEng, Frank Mohn U.K. Ltd.
The system is based on the principle of one self-contained hydraulic pump and pipe unit per tank, the system used in chemical tankers. Advantages are avoidance of inter-tank contamination, minimization of valve leakage, improved tank drainage and reduced slop. Applicable to conventional cargo and segregated ballast ships.
Details and application forms may be obtained from The Conference Officer, The Institute of Marine Engineers, 76 Mark Lane, London EC3R 7JN, England; Telephone 01 481 8493; Telex 886841.
