Read CIRCAC’s final tanker self-arrest study

The purpose of this report is to better understand the capabilities of crude oil tank vessels (oil tankers) to self-arrest. The water depth of Cook Inlet affords tankers the capability to utilize their anchor gear to self-arrest their motion. Due to Cook Inlet’s environmental conditions including currents, wind, and ice, this study provides an assessment of the capability of self-arresting an oil tanker successfully during inclement environmental conditions.
