Risk Assessment of Port Manoeuvres of a Chemical Tanker Vessel
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The development of smart port systems and autonomous navigation is related to the growing interest in the systemic approach to risk assessment of port operations especially for the vessels transporting dangerous cargo. The paper presents the general risk model of port manoeuvres of a chemical tanker vessel. The risk model is based on Bayesian influence diagram allowing to determine the risk dependent on the decisions made with respect to the applied safety options. The conclusions are based on real life near miss examples and discussion of experienced Ship Masters.
