Supply Ship Operations

The third edition of this book considers the changes in the working environment and the ships doing the job, since the first edition was published in 1991. It contains practical guidance on many of the activities undertaken by anchor-handlers and platform ships. 

Retained are chapters on ship-handling, the carriage of cargo, working with semi-submersibles and jack-ups, towing and emergencies, and there are new chapters on operations, accidents and safety. The text is supported by 100 colour photos and 15 diagrams.
