Chemical cargo barge cleaning is the process of emptying the barge’s containers of any remaining cargo and cleaning them so that it can be loaded with new or different cargo, inspected, or repaired. Cleaning on a barge can be done while it’s at a pier, in a dry berth, beached, or at anchor.
The most significant risks are brought on by flammable materials, chemical exposures, and skin touch or inhalation. The exposure restrictions in 29 CFR 1915 Subpart Z, Hazard Communication, and personal protective equipment must all be addressed. Throughout the cleansing of the barge, these risks should be assessed.
The Global Chemical barge market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The Pearl of Periyar is a new barge that Fertilisers and Chemicals Travancore Limited (FACT) has introduced for the transit of ammonia. In front of top company officials, the public sector company’s chairman and managing director, signalled the start of the new barge carrying ammonia. 350 tonnes of liquid ammonia can be transported on the barge.
By FACT Engineering and Design Organisation and FACT Engineering Works, the ammonia pipeline and instrumentation system, as well as the ammonia bullets for cargo vessels, were developed and constructed.
The message also stated that the Department of Ship Technology at Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) served as the barge’s design consultant in addition to being the vessel’s classification agency, Indian Register of Shipping.
52 metres and 10.5 metres, respectively, make up the vessel’s length and width. Gross weight is 413 tonnes for the ship when unoccupied. The second barge held by FACT is the new one.
