Surveying an oil tanker (DVD or VHS video).

This package consists of a two-part video and booklet, supplied by Videotel. It shows a detailed inspection by two surveyors from Lloyd's Register as they survey a double hulled tanker.

Who will benefit?

Surveyors and ships' officers

Key content

The surveyors are on board to conduct the following surveys:

  • classification

  • safety construction

  • safety equipment

  • loadline

  • intermediate special

  • MARPOL oil intermediate

The camera follows the surveyors during their inspections. The points being checked can be seen in detail and are described by the commentary. This is a very thorough series of surveys and very close attention is paid to the condition of the steelwork.

The background to the surveys is explained and the part played by the ship's officers can be seen. Whilst the package was produced to help train surveyors, it provides a very useful insight to surveying and as such is appropriate for training of ships' officers.

What will you learn?

Part 1 of the package shows amongst other things: definitions and categories of repairs, detailed inspections of the hull, anchors, pump room, tanks, bridge and navigational equipment and steering gear.

Part 2 of the package shows amongst other things: cargo tanks, COW/IG systems, generators, life saving appliances, fire fighting equipment and systems, together with matters concerning the issue of the certificates and final reports.

This package is best used in conjunction with the package entitled "Surveying a bulk carrier", as there are common details which are not repeated.
