For sake of safety and maximizing profits, tankers perform crude oil washing of tanks. Crude oil washing (COW) has to be performed under the supervision of certified officers and ratings have to be trained accordingly. The oxygen content in the tanks are typically maintained below 5% during COW operations. Regulations according to MARPOL are followed for the minimum level of washing during discharge. Generally, COW is done concurrently with discharge. Fire due to Static is a major hazard during COW operations and there have been many accidents. Seafarers need legal assistance for incidents on board ships that have occurred for reasons beyond their control. With a shortage of trained staff, live video calls to family members goes a long way in enhancing the performance and hence the safety and turnover of the companies. Safety is paramount, particularly in circumstances where help from outside parties can be delayed or non-existent. Vast amounts of data need to be transferred on most kinds of ships particularly those involved in research and the costs are falling each day. Gone are the days of radio communication and with it radio silence. The order of the day is real-time information. It is important to know the causes of the fire and the available and effective methods to fight it. The safety and survival of the fire fighters is equally important as the safety and survival of the potential victims.
