by Hancox, Michael
Barge Masters, Tow Masters, Marine Advisors, Rig Movers and others responsible for the planning, organisation and execution of the movement of both semi-submersible vessels and other barge types will find this volume contains most of the information required to carry out such operations. It views such work from the ëbargeí viewpoint and contains data on towing vessel selection, conduct of towing operations and contingency planning. Other sections deal with the loading of semi-submersible cargo carriers, modular transport operations and other specialist work. It can be used by shore based staff as a planning tool as well as a practical manual of standard operating practices.
