|Guidelines for Marine Operations|
For years now the offshore industry has needed a readily available set of guidelines covering most of the more common types of offshore operations. This is simply because the more people that are aware of the constraints likely to be imposed by the necessity to insure projects, the smoother, more cost effective and safer marine operations will run from start to finish. This new book has been written by London Offshore Consultants in the light of the company’s experience as the Marine Insurance Warranty Surveyors on about half of all of offshore installations worldwide. You’ll find a detailed contents list below but if your company or personnel are involved in any aspects of design, construction, installation or logistics for offshore operations then access to a copy of this book will be extremely useful.
