Handling deballasting operation during cargo loading - Bulk carrier guide
Handling of deballasting- ship duties
The ships officer should advise the terminal representative of any deviation from the deballasting plan or any other matter which may affect cargo loading.
If the ship cannot deballast at the rate agreed in the loading plan, or if deballasting is causing the ship to list or trim incorrectly, the terminal representative should be informed in good time and arrangements made for the suspension of loading until the ship has resolved the problem.
The ship should be kept upright or, if a list is required for operational reasons, it should be kept as small as possible.
The master should ensure close supervision of the loading operation and of the ship during final stages of loading. The master should advise the terminal representative when final trimming of the ship has to commence in order to allow for the conveyor system run-off.
It is prudent that a draught survey is carried out with about 90% of the cargo loaded.
