Dry docking and under water repairs as per class requirements

About the Course:

The course is presented through classroom lectures, Participants participation in projects and practical application exercises. The course addresses the deck plate level of practical operation needed by the dock operator and the universally accepted mathematical calculations required to carry out operations in accordance with established sound engineering practices. The course has accreditation with the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and the Royal Institution of Naval

  • WORKING SAFELY IN DRY DOCKING ENVIRONMENT.

·         Fire hoses connected to shore hydrants are laid on deck and pressurized.

·         Precautions are taken to avoid tools or other materials from falling from the sides of the ship.

·                                Safety helmets are a must.

·                                Cables or hoses do not obstruct excess to passageways.

·                                Fire extinguishers are made available near welding sites.

·      For long stay or cold climates, water in engines or pipes has to be drained away to prevent freezing.
