VesselFinder during Flooding and immediate action
the sound signal of the relevant emergency stations and the call of the master.
b Crew to “wait”.
c Main engine (s) in standby mode, the speed of the vessel is reduced before maneuvering.
d Maneuver the ship as required:
⇒ Security personnel
Reduce the effect of flooding (if the cause is known).
e Designated personnel under the authority of the Chief (deck) and the Chief Engineer
(Space machines) for probing tanks and spaces for installation:
⇒ Flood level
⇒ Approximate rate of water ingress.
f As a precautionary measure, prepare craft equipment and other life-saving appliances (EPIRBS, etc.).
in this case the ship must be stopped in the water.
g Notify relevant shore / port authorities depending on the severity of the situation, but notify the Company in any case.
h from the received sound data:
⇒ Calculate the current impact of floods on stability and stress
⇒ Calculate the impact on stability and stress for any expected corrective actions to be taken against the flood, for example. to correct any result list, etc.
Calculate whether the vessel has pumping equipment and a capacity to discharge or flood the flood water. If not, what is the possible final effect of the flood on stability.
j Where possible, pump out flooded areas using a stationary pump system operating on ships. Otherwise, use portable equipment, such as teachers.
k Prepare for oil pollution prevention where possible (SMS , VesselFinder , SOPEP Manuals).
l Use side materials where possible to contain water flow (dungeons, mattresses, etc.).
