MARPOL 73/78 Annex 1 Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil
FOR MARINE ENGINEERING NOTES AND BOOKS YOU CAN VISIT OUR BLOG ,IT IS VERY HELPFUL FOR MEO CLASS4 AND CLASS2 EXAM https://sites.google.com/site/frerfuninstudy/ MOBILE NO ;- +91-8210767178 EMAIL;- [email protected] Marpol Annex 1 -Regulations for preventing oil pollution from ships To prevent pollution of the sea and the consequent destruction and damage to life in it and along its shores, extensive international legislation exists, and some nations enforce far-reaching and strict laws. Attention is drawn to national laws in the appropriate volumes of Admiralty Sailing Directions. Actual or probable, discharges of oil or noxious substances, or sightings of pollution should be reported to the coastal authorities. Specific instructions on reporting, where known, are given in Admiralty List of Radio Signals Volume 1. MARPOL Annex I (Oil) entered into force on 2nd October 1983. It contains regulations for the prevention of pollution by oil. The United Kingdom domestic legislation to implement this Annex was the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations 1983. Discharging of Oil : The regulations govern the discharges, except for clean or segregated ballast, from all ships. They require inter alia all ships to be fitted with pollution prevention equipment to comply with the stringent discharge regulations. Discharge into the sea of oil or oily mixtures, as defined in an Appendix to the Convention, is prohibited by the regulations of AnnexI except when all the following conditions are satisfied. From the machinery space bilges of all ships, except from those of tankers where the discharge is mixed with oil cargo residue: The ship is not within a Special Area; The ship is more than 12nautical miles from the nearest land; The ship is en route; The oil content of the effluent is less than 15 parts per million. And; The ship has in operation an oil discharge monitoring and control system, oily-water separating equipment, oil filtering system or other installation required by this Annex. These restrictions do not apply to discharges of oily mixture which without dilution have an oil content not exceeding 15ppm. From the cargo area of an oil tanker (discharges from cargo tanks, including cargo pump rooms; and from machinery space bilges mixed with cargo oil residue): The tanker is not within a Special Area; The tanker is more than 50nautical miles from the nearest land; The tanker is proceeding en route; The instantaneous rate of discharge of oil content does not exceed 30litres per nautical mile; The total quantity of oil discharged into the sea does not exceed for existing tankers 1/15000 of the total quantity of the particular cargo of which the residue formed a part, and for new tankers (as defined in the Annex) 1/30000 of the total quantity of the particular cargo of which the residue formed a part; and The tanker has in operation, except where provided for in the Annex, an oil discharge monitoring and control system and a slop tank arrangement. Special and Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas. AnnexI applies to all such areas. Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plans (SOPEP): Regulation26 of Annex1 to MARPOL 73/78 requires every oil tanker of 150grt and above and every other vessel of 400grt and above, to carry on board a SOPEP approved by the vessel’s flag administration. Regulation26 came into force on 4 April 1995 for all existing vessels. IMO has produced guidelines, as IMO Resolution MEPC 54(32), for the development of SOPEPs. This regulation also applies to offshore installations engaged in gas and oil production, seaports and oil terminals. Environment Aspects / Causes of Pollution from Ships The interface of ships with the marine and air environments can lead to their potential pollution in the following ways: 1. Pollution by Oil (including Oily Bilge Water) 2. Pollution by other Noxious substances & Packaged Harmful substances 3. Pollution by Garbage 4. Pollution by Sewage 5. Air pollution from Engine 6. Emission of Ozone-depleting substances 7. Leaching from Anti-fouling of Hull paint 8. Pollution by Ballast water (migration of invasive species) Items (1) to (6) above are governed by the MARPOL Convention Item (7) is in Convention on the Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships Item (8) comes under Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments Any sighting of pollutant around or near the vessel should immediately brought to the notice of ships master and action to be taken to mitigate pollution as per SOPEP.

CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Inside Oil Tankers - Documentary Films All over the world, tanker operations are constantly moving. Oil tankers are ships specially designed for the bulk transport of either unrefined crude oil or petrochemicals. Their size classes can range from coastal or inland tankers of a few thousand metric tons of deadweight (DWT) to a colossal amount of 550,000 DWT. These giant specialized ships transport approximately two billion metric tons of oil across the sea every year. Crude oil is one of the world's most consumed sources of energy. Oil tankers, therefore, play a significant role in the way the country operates. Because of the products they are built to carry, without proper maintenance, these mammoth ships of black gold can also pose a threat on the environment. To ensure that an oil tanker does not severely impact the environment, oil companies must employ an expert and highly experienced ship management service to oversee tanker operations. They must also routinely check their oil tankers for maintenance purposes. Fixing the smallest dent, scratch or crack can mean the difference between safe sailing across miles of seawater and a devastating oil spill. On board the ship, safety measures should be strictly imposed. Because of the hazardous - and often flammable - nature of the materials being transported, the possession of flammable objects should be avoided if not prohibited entirely to avoid accidents, which can threaten the lives of the people on the ship, as well as the surrounding marine life. Whether at sea or anchored at a dock, tanker operations and safety measures should still be strictly implemented to prevent the ship from negatively affecting the environment.

Ballast Water Management Methods
Ballast water treatment techniques to eliminating invasive aquatic species, reducing corrosion and complying with IMO ballast water guidelines. Ballast Water Management System for ships. Ocean-going ships take on ballast water to maintain stability when sailing without cargoes. This system ensures that ballast water is harmless when it is discharged into the sea at the loading port. Animal and plant plankton, bacteria, and other harmful materials in the ballast water are removed by the combined use of a high-performance filter, chemicals and venture tubes. This Section will provide you with information about various techniques for treating ballast water. Ballasting. Ballast water exchange at sea. Sequential method. Flow-through method. Ballast System.

5 AMAZING Ship Launch Videos
Ship launching is the process of transferring a vessel to the water. It is a naval tradition in many cultures, dating back thousands of years. It has been observed as a public celebration and a solemn blessing. Ship launching imposes stresses on the ship not met during normal operation, in addition to the size and weight of the vessel, and it represents a considerable engineering challenge as well as a public spectacle. The process also involves many traditions intended to invite good luck, such as christening by breaking a sacrificial bottle of champagne over the bow as the ship is named aloud and launched. There are three principal methods of conveying a new ship from building site to water, only two of which are called "launching." The oldest, most familiar, and most widely used is the end-on launch, in which the vessel slides down an inclined slipway, usually stern first. With the side launch, the ship enters the water broadside. The third method is float-out, used for ships that are built in basins or dry docks and then floated by admitting water into the dock. In all cases, heavy chains are attached to the ship and the drag effect is used to slow the vessel once afloat, until tugboats can move the hull to a jetty for fitting out.

cruide oil washing operation in a tanker ship
FOR MARINE ENGINEERING NOTES AND BOOKS YOU CAN VISIT OUR BLOG ,IT IS VERY HELPFUL FOR MEO CLASS4 AND CLASS2 EXAM https://sites.google.com/site/frerfuninstudy/ MOBILE NO ;- +91-8210767178 EMAIL;- [email protected] Crude oil washing (COW) is washing out the residue from the tanks of an oil tanker using the crude oil cargo itself, after the cargo tanks have been emptied. Crude oil is pumped back and preheated in the slop tanks, then sprayed back via high pressure nozzles in the cargo tanks onto the walls of the tank. Due to the sticky nature of the crude oil, the oil clings to the tank walls, and such oil adds to the cargo 'remaining on board' (the ROB). By COWing the tanks, the amount of ROB is significantly reduced, and with the current high cost of oil, the financial savings are significant, both for the Charterer and the Shipowner. If the cargo ROB is deemed as 'liquid and pumpable' then the charterers can claim from the owner for any cargo loss for normally between 0.3% up to 0.5%. It replaced the load on top and seawater washing systems, both of which involved discharging oil-contaminated water into the sea. MARPOL 73/78 made this mandatory equipment for oil tankers of 20,000 tons or greater deadweight. Although COWing is most notable for actual tankers, the current chairman for Hashimoto Technical Service, Hashimoto Akiyoshi, applied this method in washing refinery plant oil tanks in Japan. Hashimoto is currently using this method in the Kyushu, Chugoku, and Tohouku regions in Japan Crude oil tankers play an important role in the global oil industry. Tanker ships are the finest means of transport for unrefined crude oil products in mass quantity. As tanker ships carry different grades of fuel oil in the same cargo tanks, it is important that the tanks are always washed before loading fresh cargo. If you work on a tanker ship or about to join one, it is important that you know everything about the crude oil washing operation on tanker ships. What is Crude Oil Washing or COW? Previously, oil tanks on crude oil tanker were cleaned by water, but this method of cleaning increased marine pollution and required bigger slop tanks to store leftover residue and oily water mixture. In order to prevent this problem, a better non pollutant way was introduced where in oil cargo of the tank itself was used to clean the cargo tanks. tanker ship Tanker Ship When oil cargo is sprayed with pressure on tank walls and surfaces, the sediments sticking to the tank dissolves and converts into useful cargo which can be pumped out to the shore tanks. This system virtually eliminates the requirement of slop tanks on ships and almost all cargo can be transferred to the shore. This process is known as Crude oil Washing or COW. Procedure for COW Crude oil washing was made mandatory under MARPOL Annex 1 regulation 13 which states that every crude oil tanker which is 20000 dwt and above must be fitted with COW system for every cargo hold tank. To perform Crude oil washing in correct and efficient manner every ship must have – Efficient and approved COW system and equipment manual Skilled Personnel onboard who are properly trained to perform the complete operation The operation can be divided in to three phases where in following checks must be performed- Before starting the operation Confirm all pre arrival checks are performed The complete COW operation to be discussed with ship and shore staff Set a communication channel between ship and shore facility for COW operation-Ship shore interface Signal and Emergency signs to be discussed to stop the operation between shore and ship staff Inert Gas plant to be working and oxygen content must be less than 5 % Fixed Oxygen analyser to be checked and calibrated for proper functioning Portable oxygen analyser should be made available and checked for proper functioning. Oxygen reading in swash bulkhead tanks must be taken from both the sides All tanks must be checked for positive inert gas pressure Assign duties to all responsible ship staff. One person to be assigned to check the leakage in the pipe line system as soon as the operation starts Check all the equipments under COW system for proper functioning Check and Set the line and valves for ship to shore under COW system When the operation is under process The inert gas values to be frequently checked- Tank pressure and O2 value The crude oil washing must be done in the designated tanks as per the plan including the washing cycle A responsible person to be always present on deck All deck lines and valves must be frequently checked for any leakages Parameters and running condition of all the machineries involved in operation to be frequently checked Ullage gauge floats to be raised for the tanks which are being washed Trim should be sufficient to assist the bottom washing of tanks The level of holding tanks to be continuously monitored to avoid overflow

MARPOL 73/ 78 Annex 6 full description ,very important for mmd safety oral
Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships Although air pollution from ships does not have the direct cause and effect associated with, for example, an oil spill incident, it causes a cumulative effect that contributes to the overall air quality problems encountered by populations in many areas, and also affects the natural environment, such as tough acid rain. MARPOL Annex VI, first adopted in 1997, limits the main air pollutants contained in ships exhaust gas, including sulphur oxides (SOx) and nitrous oxides (NOx), and prohibits deliberate emissions of ozone depleting substances (ODS). MARPOL Annex VI also regulates shipboard incineration, and the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from tankers. Following entry into force of MARPOL Annex VI on 19 May 2005,the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), at its 53rd session (July 2005), agreed to revise MARPOL Annex VI with the aim of significantly strengthening the emission limits in light of technological improvements and implementation experience. As a result of three years examination, MEPC 58 (October 2008) adopted the revised MARPOL Annex VI and the associated NOx Technical Code 2008, which entered into force on 1 July 2010. Revised MARPOL Annex VI The main changes to MARPOL Annex VI are a progressive reduction globally in emissions of SOx, NOx and particulate matter and the introduction of emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas. Under the revised MARPOL Annex VI, the global sulphur cap will be reduced from current 3.50% to 0.50%, effective from 1 January 2020, subject to a feasibility review to be completed no later than 2018. MEPC 70 (October 2016) considered an assessment of fuel oil availability to inform the decision to be taken by the Parties to MARPOL Annex VI, and decided that the fuel oil standard (0.50% sulphur limit) shall become effective on 1 January 2020. The limits applicable in ECAs for SOx and particulate matter were reduced to 0.10%, from 1 January 2015. Progressive reductions in NOx emissions from marine diesel engines installed on ships are also included, with a "Tier II" emission limit for engines installed on a ship constructed on or after 1 January 2011; and a more stringent "Tier III" emission limit for engines installed on a ship constructed on or after 1 January 2016 operating in ECAs (North American Emission Control Area and the U.S. Caribbean Sea Emission Control Area). Marine diesel engines installed on a ship constructed on or after 1 January 1990 but prior to 1 January 2000 are required to comply with "Tier I" emission limits, if an approved method for that engine has been certified by an Administration. The revised NOx Technical Code 2008 includes a new chapter based on the agreed approach for regulation of existing (pre-2000) engines established in MARPOL Annex VI, provisions for a direct measurement and monitoring method, a certification procedure for existing engines and test cycles to be applied to Tier II and Tier III engines.MEPC 66 (April 2014) adopted amendments to regulation 13 of MARPOL Annex VI regarding the effective date of NOx Tier III standards. The amendments provide for the Tier III NOx standards to be applied to a marine diesel engine that is installed on a ship constructed on or after 1 January 2016 and which operates in the North American Emission Control Area or the U.S. Caribbean Sea Emission Control Area that are designated for the control of NOx emissions. In addition, the Tier III requirements would apply to installed marine diesel engines when operated in other emission control areas which might be designated in the future for Tier III NOx control. Tier III would apply to ships constructed on or after the date of adoption by the Marine Environment Protection Committee of such an emission control area, or a later date as may be specified in the amendment designating the NOx Tier III emission control area. Further, the Tier III requirements do not apply to a marine diesel engine installed on a ship constructed prior to 1 January 2021 of less than 500 gross tonnage, of 24 m or over in length, which has been specifically designed and is used solely, for recreational purposes. Revisions to the regulations for ozone-depleting substances, volatile organic compounds, shipboard incineration, reception facilities and fuel oil quality were also made with regulations on fuel oil availability added.The revised measures are expected to have a significant beneficial impact on the atmospheric environment and on human health, particularly for those people living in port cities and coastal communities.
Are you ready for MARPOL?
As the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has decided to implement the MARPOL Annex VI, all ships must globally reduce their emissions of sulfur by 86% before 2020. The shipping and refinery business is facing a new reality.

Most DANGEROUS Beaches In The World!
Check out the most dangerous beaches in the world! These shark infested waters will make you never wanna swim in the ocean again! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Sea Monsters Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/B9aPB6KB504 Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/0eRi-vbA2y4 Watch our "Most Amazing Cities Found UNDERWATER!" video here: https://youtu.be/rUqxhYJqGhU List of most dangerous beaches in the world: 9. Gansbaai, South Africa Known as the Great White Shark diving capital of the world, the stretch of water between Gansbaai and Dyer Island in South Africa is also known as "shark alley". These sharks are drawn to the area because of the Colony of 60,000 Cape Fur seals living in and around that small channel of water. Instead of driving people away, the sharks are The main source of tourism in the area. Visitors from all over the world come to go cage diving in order to see these predators up close. If you're up for adventure travel then this would be the perfect vacation for you. Without the cage, it is One of the most dangerous areas to go for a swim in the world. Only because a person swimming might look a lot like a seal. In 2013, a Couple on their honeymoon went on a cage dive and a great white approached, swam right past the bait, fit its head through the bars and thrashed around, trying to get at the couple. It almost killed the groom but, he survived. The near-tragedy Prompted critics to tell people to not cage dive, citing that chumming waters looking for sharks leads to fatalities. 8. Chowpatty Beach, India Chowpatty Beach is both India’s most famous beach and One of the most polluted in the world. Even though the sea is unfit for swimming, every year hundreds of locals celebrate the Hindu festival of Ganesha Chaturthi on the beach. During the festival, it’s a Tradition to wash their idols of Lord Ganapati in the ocean water. Because of the high amount of pollution, celebrants are more likely to Catch nasty diseases like e. coli and hepatitis. The causes of the pollution can be traced to discharge from sewage pipes, waste from storm drains, and open defecation. For a long time the beach itself was Covered in debris and scraps from salvaged ships. In August of 2016, the sands of the beach mysteriously turned black. An oil slick was blamed but the source of the oil was never found. 7. Fraser Island, Australia Fraser Island, off the coast of Australia, is The world's largest sand island. This paradise is extremely popular for camping and ecotourism but before you go, you should be aware of what lurks beneath the sand and sea. Sharks and potentially jellyfish fill the waters around Fraser Island. Rip currents also pose a threat to swimmers and surfers. The beach isn’t much better, either. The island is home to some of the world’s most dangerous spiders, wild dingos and large crocodiles. Spinal injuries are common from visitors careening around the sand dunes on four wheelers. Every year there is a steady stream of accidents. The RACQ CareFlight is a charity-backed service that doesn’t charge its patients for rescue helicopter missions. From 2013-2014 the helicopters flew 64 rescue missions to Fraser Island. During an average summer holiday, 40 to 50 emergency calls are made to paramedics. So far, at least one child has been taken by dingoes on Fraser Island and countless others have been Stung by the Irukandji jellyfish and airlifted out. Before visiting this natural wonderland, just be aware of what dangers you might face. And don't feed the dingos! 6. Island of La Reunion, Indian Ocean This little known gem in the Indian Ocean, 140 miles from Mauritius, is One of the most intriguing spots on Earth. With an active volcano, forests, mountains, and scenic beaches what more could you ask of the tropical paradise? Just don't go in the water. For some reason the waters off La Reunion are One of the most dangerous shark attack spots in the world. While in Mariutius, people are happily swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, at La Reunion, people barely dip more than a toe in the water because of a fear of shark attacks. Since 2011 there have been 18 shark attacks resulting in 7 casualties. This means that in the past 5 years, 13% of all the world’s fatal shark attacks have occurred on this 40 mile long island. In 2013 Officials placed a ban on swimming and surfing on more than half of the coastline. Before 2011, shark attacks were infrequent and rarely fatal. No one is sure why there are suddenly so many sharks in the area. One victim of the attacks was a 13-year-old up and coming surfer named Elio Canestri in April 2013. He went surfing after leaving a note for his mother, and was caught while surfing in an unmonitored area. Experts say that the Main culprits for the attacks are bull sharks, which are the most aggressive tropical sharks.

How Sewage Treatment Works - Waste Water cleaning in Sewer System - Santander By Juan Gonzalo Angel
Twitter @juangangel Giron - Santander Colombia Sewage treatment may also be referred to as wastewater treatment, although the latter is a broader term which can also be applied to purely industrial wastewater. For most cities, the sewer system will also carry a proportional of industrial effluent to the sewage treatment plant which has usually received pretreatment at the factories themselves to reduce the pollutant load. If the sewer system is a combined sewer then it will also carry urban runoff (stormwater) to the sewage treatment plant. The total mass of organic matter (measured as biochemical oxygen demand) discharged to receiving water bodies is equal to the discharge concentration times the flow volume. Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater, primarily from household sewage. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove these contaminants and produce environmentally safe treated wastewater (or treated effluent). A by-product of sewage treatment is usually a semi-solid waste or slurry, called sewage sludge, that has to undergo further treatment before being suitable for disposal or land application. Sewage collection and treatment is typically subject to local, state and federal regulations and standards. Treating wastewater has the aim to produce an effluent that will do as little harm as possible when discharged to the surrounding environment, thereby preventing pollution compared to releasing untreated wastewater into the environment.[5] Sewage treatment generally involves three stages, called primary, secondary and tertiary treatment. Primary treatment consists of temporarily holding the sewage in a quiescent basin where heavy solids can settle to the bottom while oil, grease and lighter solids float to the surface. The settled and floating materials are removed and the remaining liquid may be discharged or subjected to secondary treatment. Some sewage treatment plants that are connected to a combined sewer system have a bypass arrangement after the primary treatment unit. This means that during very heavy rainfall events, the secondary and tertiary treatment systems can be bypassed to protect them from hydraulic overloading, and the mixture of sewage and stormwater only receives primary treatment. Secondary treatment removes dissolved and suspended biological matter. Secondary treatment is typically performed by indigenous, water-borne micro-organisms in a managed habitat. Secondary treatment may require a separation process to remove the micro-organisms from the treated water prior to discharge or tertiary treatment. Tertiary treatment is sometimes defined as anything more than primary and secondary treatment in order to allow rejection into a highly sensitive or fragile ecosystem (estuaries, low-flow rivers, coral reefs,...). Treated water is sometimes disinfected chemically or physically (for example, by lagoons and microfiltration) prior to discharge into a stream, river, bay, lagoon or wetland, or it can be used for the irrigation of a golf course, green way or park. If it is sufficiently clean, it can also be used for groundwater recharge or agricultural purposes. More info at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sewage_treatment Juan Gonzalo Angel www.tvagro.tv

Viking Star Cruise Ship : The complete tour
MV Viking Star is the lead ship of the Viking Star-class of cruise ships, and the first such ship operated by Viking Ocean Cruises, a division of Viking Cruises. She entered service in April 2015. Two Viking Star-class sister ships, Viking Sea and Viking Sky, will join her in the Viking Ocean Cruises fleet in 2016. Full specifications: Class and type: Viking Star-class Type: Cruise ship Tonnage: 47,800 GT Length: 228 metres long Beam: 29 metres wide Draught: 6.3 metres Decks: 14 Propulsion: 2 azipods Speed: 20 knots Capacity: 930 passengers Crew: 602 crewmembers Viking Star was designed by SMC Design of London, while Rottet Studio in Los Angeles was engaged to design her interior. The vessel's modern Scandinavian design ties in with that of Viking Cruises' river cruisers, and was intended to mix onboard elegance with a focus on destinations. As a relatively small vessel, Viking Star is able to access most ports directly, and thus facilitate efficient and trouble-free embarkation and debarkation processes. She also has a hydro-dynamically optimised streamlined hull and bow for maximum fuel efficiency. The ship's first plate was cut on 7 June 2013 at the Fincantieri Marghera shipyard in Marghera, Italy. The plate cutting ceremony was attended, among others, by Torstein Hagen, founder and chairman of Viking. The keel was laid on 18 December 2013. Fincantieri launched Viking Star on 23 June 2014, about 20 days earlier than the previously announced launch date in mid-July. In October 2014, Viking Ocean Cruises announced that Norwegian seafarer Gulleik Svalastog had been appointed as the captain of Viking Star. Captain Svalastog had more than 45 years of experience in the maritime industry, and most recently he had served as a captain for Color Line. He had previously held a variety of senior ship management positions, including the roles of superintendent for Norwegian Cruise Line and Crystal Cruises, and lead auditor for Det Norske Veritas. His initial task as captain was to be a member of the team overseeing the final stage of Viking Star‍ '​s outfitting and interior build-out. In mid-December 2014, the ship successfully completed a week long period of sea trials in the Aegean Sea, during which she underwent more than 80 different tests. A variety of functions and systems were evaluated, including engine and propulsion performance, the navigation systems, and cabin acoustics. Viking Ocean Cruises took delivery of Viking Star at the shipyard on 28 March 2015. Public areas On board, Viking Star features 2 pools, the main pool and the Infinity Pool, a spa and a fitness center. She also has two restaurants, lounges, the piano lounge and the explorers lounge, the wintergarden, the aquavit terrace and the world cafe. Also, Viking Star has a sports deck, the star theatre and bar, the lobby bar and various shops. Accommodation Viking Star has five stateroom categories, all with private verandas, and 14 Explorer Suites. Up to 930 passengers can be accommodated in her 465 staterooms and suites, all of which are spacious for a cruise ship. The smallest staterooms are 25 m2 (270 sq ft) in size; the two-room suites range from 70.3 m2 (757 sq ft) to 134.5 m2 (1,448 sq ft) in area, and feature wrap-around private balconies offering sweeping views. Machinery The vessel is fitted with energy-efficient hybrid engines, and onboard solar panels and exhaust pollution-minimising equipment to enable her to meet strict environmental regulations. Her Compac propeller shaft bearings, manufactured by Thordon Bearings, are lubricated by seawater, which is recycled into the ocean. The use of seawater as a lubricant lowers in-service maintenance costs, by eliminating the requirement for an aft seal. The seawater lubricant also replaces expensive biodegradable oils, which, if used, would need to be stored, sampled and disposed of, and would also create a risk of accidental oil discharge. Entertainment facilities The theatre features live entertainment, as well as new-release films and some old favourites. Additionally, there are port talks and lectures from the on-board cultural enrichment programmes on art, history and culture. The lecture programme includes academic lecturers, local speakers and interactive demonstrations.

Natural Remedies for Ear Infection
Ear infections are caused by bacteria or viruses in the middle ear. Ear infections occur more often in children than adults. Some causes and contributing factors that lead to ear infections are wax buildup, upper respiratory infections, food allergies, environmental allergies, genetics, nutritional deficiencies and internal injuries. Some common signs that someone is suffering from an ear infection are pain in the ear, tugging at the ear, difficulty sleeping, headache, poor response to sounds, high fever and fluid draining from the ear. The ear is made up of three parts: outer, middle and inner. An ear infection can occur in any of the three parts. Inner ear infections are the most serious. It is important to treat an ear infection to prevent complications, including damaging or rupturing the ear drum. There are many time-honored, simple and easy home remedies that can help to get rid of the pain and other symptoms of an ear infection. 1. Salt Salt is probably the most readily available home remedy. Heat up one cup of salt on a pan over low heat for a few minutes. You can also heat it in a microwave or double-boiler. Place the hot salt on a cloth and seal the open end with rubber band (or tie a knot). When it is bearably hot, lay down and put the cloth on the affected ear for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat this remedy daily as many times as needed. The heat generated from the sock will help draw out fluid from the ear and relieve swelling and pain. As an alternative, you can use one cup of rice in the same manner described above. 2. Garlic Garlic has antimicrobial properties and natural pain relieving qualities, making it highly effective in the treatment of ear infections. There are a few ways to use garlic as a home treatment. Make garlic oil by cooking two garlic cloves in two tablespoons of sesame oil or mustard oil until it turns blackish. Strain the solution. When it is bearably hot, use two to four drops of this oil in the infected ear as ear drops. Alternatively, you can also boil two or three fresh garlic cloves in water for five minutes, then crush them and add some salt. Put the mixture in a clean cloth and place it against the affected ear. Consuming two to three cloves of raw garlic daily also helps speed up the healing process. 3. Apple Cider Vinegar To get rid of the fungus that may be causing the ear infection, apple cider vinegar is a good option. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with an equal amount of water or alcohol. Soak a cotton ball in the solution. Put the cotton ball in your ear like a plug and leave it for about five minutes. Remove the cotton ball and lay down on your opposite side to drain the liquid from the ear. Use a hair dryer to dry your ear as much as possible. 4. Olive Oil One of the main causes of an ear infection is wax in the ear catching some fungal or bacterial growth leading to a blockage in the Eustachian tubes. You can easily clear the obstruction with the help of olive oil. Warm some olive oil slightly. Put a few drops of the warm oil into the infected ear. The oil will cause the wax to soften. Remove the infected wax with cotton-tipped swabs. Be careful not to put the swab too far in the ear or you might damage the eardrum.
