Operation & Management Level

Chemical Tanker Cargo Operation

Scope and Objective

The Scope and objectives of ” The Chemical Tanker Cargo Operation including Wall Wash (CTCO) -Operation & Management Level  course “ is to bridge the competency gap between the operation of IMO type III chemicals and the IMO type I/II chemicals.

This course is designed as per industry requirement and covers

  • Wall wash,
  • Passivation of cargo tanks,
  • Carriage of dangerous and toxic chemicals like TDI, PMDI, PO and
  • Various types of Acids, Phenol etc.

Many chemicals are extremely sensitive to contamination, just a few parts per million of a previous cargo can contaminate an entire shipment. Many cargo samples are taken during the loading of chemicals.

When a cargo is contaminated it must be established whether the cargo was affected prior to loading; or during its transportation on board. Cargo transfer hoses may also contribute to cargo contamination. Therefore, hoses should be properly cleaned in between different cargoes.

There is an ever-growing concern for cargo contamination, venting, accidents due to cargo spillage in IMO Type I/II parcel chemical tankers due to lack of knowledge and expertise from officers. 

This course is designed such that the officers trained under this course are knowledgeable to minimise such incidents.
