Ship-to-Ship (STS) transfer operation is the cargo transfer between ships positioned alongside each other, either while stationary or underway.
The STS transfer of crude oil and petroleum cargoes has become common practice. Experience gained from these regular operations has proven that STS transfers are safe when the appropriate equipment is used and complying with proper procedures by considering the operation limits according to the weather and sea conditions.
It is not easy to get two moving objects close to each other smoothly and safely and there are serious dangers to be avoided.
Check out our Learning Engagement Tool CBT trailer for “Ship to Ship Operations” which is prepared with problem-based learning methodology, focuses on providing awareness, best practices, guidelines, and safety recommendations with realistic scenarios and triggering questions that allow discussion between the crew members and eases facilitation.
