    Attempting to minimize operating costs to fishers, they sometimes decide to use the cheapest marine fuels. Their low quality adversely affects the durability of fuel injection equipment. Similarly, reduction of sulfur and aromatic hydrocarbons, increase the boiling point at normal pressure and cetane number of modern fuels leads to a significant deterioration in their tribological properties. Polish fishing vessels can be achieved by using biofuels, which is a mixture of diesel and rapeseed oil. To carry out comparative studies for diesel and biofuel engines used to power fishing vessels were needed data, specifying lubricity and calorific value of fuels used by Polish fishermen. The conclusions are based on the examination of the chosen parameters for randomly selected fuel samples from Polish suppliers or taken directly on fishing vessels

    The article presents methodology of assessing the service life of steel load-carrying structures of cranes, tak-ing account of the approach presented in Eurocode 3. In the considered case, such assessment covers already operated structures. From criterion of assessment of fatigue carrying capacity, a condition has been derived, specifying the limit number of reloading cycles corresponding to exhaustion of the design operation perio

    Due to the economical crisis many ship owners introduced new ways of improving the economic efficiency of a ship. This has exerted an influence on main engine operating conditions due to the reduction in fuel consumption. The loading range of engines during sea passages has significantly changed. It has also changed operating conditions of the waste-heat boiler which is connected with ships prime mover. The following paper deals with operating conditions of the waste heat boiler powered by exhausts of the marine slow-speed long-stroke diesel engine of the ship which was operated under the “Super Slow Steaming” program in the tropical area

    This study presents the results of research aimed at assessing the importance of a Voyage Data Recorder (black box) in an analysis of the ship conduct. The analysis was performed by teams of Polish maritime experts, judges, a ministry delegate and jurors of the Maritime Court in Szczecin, experienced captains, chief engineers and officers of the watch of the merchant fleet

    The paper addresses the problem of verification of damage stability requirements of tank ships prior to depar-ture. The surveys conducted by some IMO Member Governments show that a considerable number of tank ships sail in loading conditions different from those contained in approved stability booklets and furthermore the masters have no means to check compliance with relevant damage stability criteria prior to departure. In this context the Sub-Committee on Stability and Load Lines and on Fishing Vessels Safety (SLF) was tasked by the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) to consider the matter and to elaborate proper guidelines for verification of damage stability criteria for tankers. It was decided that the guidelines would address both design and operational issues. The paper considers the current state of the Sub-Committee‟s work and in par-ticular the terms of reference for Intersessional Correspondence Group established at SLF 53 in January 2011

    In the paper the hazard estimation method of assessment of risk on ship routes in terms of the random maps has been proposed. The two-dimensional, multimodal density function of hazard areas has been used. Furthermore, the application to identify the main threats, based on accepted minimum level of safety for particular navigational situation has been propose

    The safe operations of LNG terminal in Świnoujście mainly depends on safe operations of LNG tankers. Manoeuvring the LNG tanker at the terminal entrance and basin is always connected with a risk of accident. Areas where the risk of accident is the greatest are those in the vicinity of entrance heads and the turning basin. Accidents within these areas are burdened with the most serious consequences. This article presents possible scenarios of LNG tanker accident consequences in the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście

    The article briefly describes one of the modules of a Liquid Cargo handling Simulator operated by the Maritime University of Szczecin, designed to simulate the handling of liquid. It addresses shipping security issues in the context of ISPS Code requirements for port facilities and presents the applicability of simulation methods in the security plan development and verification

    A rapid development of information technologies opens increasingly wider opportunities for enhanced performance of all modes of transport, including carriage by sea. Such chances are offered by new and existing intelligent transport systems. The idea of creating a maritime intelligent transport system is convergent with the conception of e-navigation developed in recent years on the IMO forum. Navigational information systems, one component of the maritime intelligent transport system, support the process of ship conduct. We should expect that developments of these systems will be going towards decision support systems – intelligent navigational advisory systems. Apart from information functions, the tasks of these systems include hazard identification in ship movement (e.g. collision situations), warning against hazards and automatic generation of solutions (recommended manoeuvres). This article characterizes tasks of the maritime intelligent transport system and the place and functions of navigational decision support systems

    Supervising ship stability during cargo operations poses many difficulties. Factors such as reduction of ship crew and constant pursuit of profit, resulting in increased cargo handling capacity in ports, put ship officers in an uneasy situation, which leads to accidents. This paper outlines the main problem of supervising ship stability in port, such as loss of stability and hull structural stress. It also shows how an LCHS simulator can contribute to examine the concepts of stability loss and hull loads

    This article describes basic tasks to be done in the process of designing LNG terminals. In this connection various possible applications of computer simulation models are discussed. Dedicated methods for the selection of terminal site and the determination of parameters of approach channels, port areas and cargo handling facilities are presented. These methods make use of various models of computer-based simulation. The methods herein described have actually been used in the works on designing the LNG terminal in Świnoujście

    The sequential method of emptying and filling of ballast tanks at sea may pose extra threats for ship’s safety. The prepared Ballast Water Management (BWM) Plan enables carrying out the operation so that negative effects of emptying each ballast tank are minimized. A large number of tanks and substantial volume of ballast water to be exchanged may create difficulties in preparing an optimized plan. The author proposes to use a liquid cargo handling simulator for the preparation of the BWM plan for selected LNG carriers
