SUB COMMITTEE ON SHIP DESIGN AND EQUIPMENT 52nd session Agenda item 20 ANY OTHER BUSINESS An example of Emergency Towing Procedures Submitted by Japan SUMMARY Executive summary:

This document provides an example of emergency towing procedures, which include Emergency Towing Booklet (ETB), intending to support the preparation of emergency towing procedures by shipowners/shipbuilders. 2 2.1.1 2.1.1.5 Paragraph 9 MSC 84/24, MSC 84/24/Add.1 and DE 50/27

Strategic Direction High level Action Planned output Action to be taken: Related documents: Introduction

1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-fourth session, adopted amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, including the amendments to chapter II-2, regulation 3-4, Emergency towing arrangements and procedures, and approved Guidelines for owners/operators on preparing emergency towing procedures (MSC.1/Circ.1255). 2 The new regulations will require all passenger ships and cargo ships to be provided with a ship-specific emergency towing procedure, which shall include drawings of fore and aft deck, showing possible emergency towing arrangements and inventory of equipment on board that can be used for emergency towing. The regulations will be applied to all passenger ships and cargo ships constructed on or after 1 January 2010, not later than 1 January 2010, and cargo ships constructed before 1 January 2010, not later than 1 January 2012.

For reasons of economy, this document is printed in a limited number. Delegates are kindly asked to bring their copies to meetings and not to request additional copies.

3 The regulations of the Convention and guidelines, however, do not provide standard formats for emergency towing procedures. Thus, the Sub-Committee on Ship Design and Equipment (DE), at its fiftieth session, invited Member Governments and international organizations to develop a workable example of emergency towing procedures and submit it for the information. Development of an example of an emergency towing booklet 4 Considering the request from DE 50, Japan conducted a project of developing an example of emergency towing procedures for a Panamax bulk carrier. 5 The main purpose of the project was to support shipowners/shipbuilders in the smooth development of emergency towing procedures to be entered in the Emergency Towing Booklet (ETB). Shipowners, shipbuilders, towing companies, a classification society and the Japanese Government participated in the project. 6 In developing an example of ETB, the requirements of the Convention and the guidelines were scrutinized to understand what and how information should be included in the ETB, taking into account actual emergency situations. Careful attention was paid both to compliance to the requirements and to practicability of preparing ETBs. 7 A sample form for emergency towing procedures would also be beneficial not only for shipowners to prepare emergency towing procedures but also for towing companies to easily understand each ships towing procedure in emergency situation. In view of this, a sample form was also prepared. 8 The developed example as well as the sample form of ETB are set out in annexes 1 and 2 to this document, respectively. Action requested of the Sub-Committee 9 The Sub-Committee is invited to note the information set out in the annexes and take action as appropriate. ***

DE 52/INF.2 ANNEX 1 Page 11 3 Decision matrix for determining towing patterns

The towing pattern should be decided by the captain of the ship, in consultation with the captain of the towing ship, by referring the following Decision Matrix. In considering the towing pattern, the ship status and the surrounding conditions (e.g., weather conditions, availability of the propulsion system and of power supply for deck machinery and imminent danger of grounding) should be taken into account. The primary towing patterns should be to tow from the bow. If it is not possible to tow from the bow for some reasons such as collision, towing from the stern may be selected as an alternative.
Condition
In case there is imminent danger such as grounding in a short time; less than 1 hour for instance.

Towing pattern
f/m the bow f/m the stern

Remarks
In case the towing ship has the sufficient towing force, Pattern 2 (2-F or 2-A) should be taken, if it is necessary to distribute the towing force into two lines. However, when there is not enough time to make arrangements for pattern 2, pattern 1 may be taken on the condition that the towing force is controlled not to exceed the strength of the deck fittings. Furthermore, at the later stage, the towing pattern 1 should be changed to pattern 2 when there is enough time to do so. In case the towing ship has the sufficient towing force, Pattern 2 (2-F or 2-A) should be taken, if it is necessary to distribute the towing force into two lines. However, when making arrangements for pattern 2 may cause danger due to the bad weather, pattern 1 may be taken on the condition that the towing force is controlled not to exceed the strength of the deck fittings. Furthermore, at the later stage, the towing pattern should be changed to pattern 2 when the weather improves. In case the towing ship has the sufficient towing force, Pattern 2 (2-F or 2-A) should be taken, if it is necessary to distribute the towing force into two lines. However, when there is no choice but to take pattern 1 for unavoidable reasons, the towing force should be controlled not to exceed the strength of deck fittings. If possible, chain should be used.

DE 52/INF.2 ANNEX 1 Page 17 5.3 (1) Notes for the towing operation During the connecting operation

All the crews should be well informed of the work procedures and personnel distribution. The person in charge of the work (chief officer) on Fcle deck (or Poop deck) should always contact the captain, and finish the work as fast as possible. The person in charge of the work should watch the movement of towing ship carefully. When the towing line with eye splice is strained, he should evacuate the crews to safe places. (2) During towing operation

It is necessary to grease up continuously in order to prevent wear of ropes in Panama chock when wire ropes are used as towing lines. Wear-out condition in Panama chock should be constantly checked. Rudder should be operated to improve the ships movement of following to the towing ship, if necessary. It should be confirmed in the engine room if there is a problem of free propeller rotation. It is necessary to determine in advance how to lock the propeller shaft. 6 Examples of the procedures for connecting towing lines

As examples of the procedures for connecting towing lines, the basic procedures for patterns 1-F, 2-F and 3-F are shown below. The captain should decide the connecting procedures in consideration of the arrangement of mooring equipment and the ship status after consulting with the captain of the towing ship and inform the crews of the procedures. (Note: The following examples are developed to be used as the common procedures for ordinary ships. It should be noted, however, that the examples are developed for this ship and that there may be cases where these examples are not applicable to other ships, especially of which design and equipment are largely different from this ship. Showing the connecting procedures simply by diagrams of deck arrangements used in section 2.5 and section 2.6 may be a practical way.)

DE 52/INF.2 ANNEX 2 Page 14 5.3 (1) Notes for the towing operation During the connecting operation

All the crews should be well informed of the work procedures and personnel distribution. The person in charge of the work (chief officer) on Fcle deck (or Poop deck) should always contact the captain, and finish the work as fast as possible. The person in charge of the work should watch the movement of towing ship carefully. When the towing line with eye splice is strained, he should evacuate the crews to safe places. (2) During towing operation

It is necessary to grease up continuously in order to prevent wear of ropes in Panama chock when wire ropes are used as towing lines. Wear-out condition in Panama chock should be constantly checked. Rudder should be operated to improve the ships movement of following to the towing ship, if necessary. It should be confirmed in the engine room if there is a problem of free propeller rotation. It is necessary to determine in advance how to lock the propeller shaft. 6 Procedures for connecting towing lines

The connecting procedures for the towing patterns described in section 4 should be shown below. The captain should decide the connecting procedures in consideration of the arrangement of mooring equipment and the ship status after consulting with the captain of the towing ship and inform the crews of the procedures. (Note: In this section, the connecting procedures for the towing patterns described in section 4 should be considered and explained. Showing the connecting procedures simply by diagrams of deck arrangements used in section 2.5 and section 2.6 may be a practical way.)
