Nitrogen systems onboard are required in order to ensure that ships are compliant with the various regulations and to ensure protection of the transportation of sensitive and flammable cargoes. Nitrogen is the purest inert gas medium, hence why it is the preferred solution onboard ships where the possibility of cargo contamination is present. Having said that, it is of paramount importance for crew working on these types of ships to know the hazards of Nitrogen and its proper uses.
This course will help prospective seafarers and those already sailing, to have full knowledge and understanding of the properties, uses and hazards of Nitrogen and how to protect themselves.
The learning outcomes of the Course will include;
1. Introduction to Nitrogen
2. Practical uses of Nitrogen on Chemical Tankers
3. Operational hazards
5. Procedures to be carried out
