Description: Ship-to-ship transfer (STS) of cargo has been performed for many years. The major attraction of STS is that it provides flexibility for the cargo owner at relatively low cost. STS operations are therefore becoming more popular, in various regions of the world. One of the consequences of the increased frequency of STS operations is that the incidence of structural damage caused during manoeuvring prior to commencement of STS operations has increased. Most often, the damage has been of a minor nature, but could have been much worse if the circumstances had been only marginally different. These incidents have most frequently involved dry-bulk carriers. Investigations into the causes of the incidents have shown that the ships involved often embarked on STS operations without first conducting proper pre-planning and risk assessments. The main purpose of this Loss Prevention Briefing is therefore to advise Members on the steps that they can take to minimise the risks inherent in STS operations.
