Veritas Guide Shows Docking Facilities For 200,000-DWT Ships

Now available from Bureau Veritas at London is a third edition of its very useful English language handbook entitled "Docking Facilities for Ships over 200,000 Tonnes Deadweight." The previous edition appeared in 1975.

Two pages are devoted to each docking facility, and the particulars are given in tabular form for which there is a clear explanatory key at the beginning of the book.

In most cases there is also a good aerial photograph showing the dockside cranes, proximity of repair shops, access roads, etc. The technical details given of each docking facility include the type of blocks and whether these are fixed or movable longitudinally or transversely; the number of rows of blocks; and their normal transverse and longitudinal spacing.

Full communication particulars are given for each establishment with addresses, telephone and telex numbers, etc.

The book is completed with details of docks under construction.

The book is available free, upon request, from Bureau Veritas, Ocean House, 24-25 Great Tower Street, London EC3R 5AQ, England.
