Lloyd’s Register (LR) has revised its periodical survey requirements for the first Special Survey of chemical and double hull oil tankers, in line with the International Maritime Organization’s latest revision of the ESP Code and the International Association of Classification Societies’ UR Z 10.3 and 10.4.
The most significant change is the removal of the following thickness measurement (TM) requirements:
- One section of deck plating for the full beam of the ship within 0,5L amidships; and
- Measurements for general assessment and recording of corrosion pattern of the structural members subject to Close-up Survey.
LR published a ShipRight procedure about the additional calculation of the longitudinal strength
