Guidelines for the Handling, Storage, Use, Maintenance and Testing of STS Hoses, May 26 2021
OCIMF’s new information paper, Guidelines for the Handling, Storage, Use, Maintenance and Testing of STS Hoses, provides guidance to STS Service Providers, Masters, and operators of ships that use hose assemblies to transfer liquid-bulk cargoes via STS and to minimise hose damage from improper handling and storing. This information paper does not cover specific details of hose construction as doing so might hinder the introduction of improved construction methods and techniques. This information paper should be read alongside the Ship to Ship Transfer Guide for Petroleum, Chemicals and Liquefied Gases (STS Transfer Guide) and the International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) as it aims to provide additional guidance. Duplication between publications has been avoided where possible.
