Celtic Star operates on the Dublin-Liverpool route.It's a Ro-Ro vessel.

The IMO MARPOL Hazard categories have been changed from A, B, C & D to X, Y, Z & OS.
IMO MARPOL Hazard A:
Quote
Noxious liquid substances which if discharged into the sea from tank cleaning or deballasting operations would present a major hazard to either marine resources or human health or cause serious harm to amenities or other legitimate uses of the sea and therefore justify the application of stringent anti-pollution measures. Examples are acetone cyanohydrin, carbon disulphide, cresols, naphthalene and tetraethyl lead.

IMO MARPOL Hazard X:
Quote
Noxious Liquid Substances which, if discharged into the sea from tank cleaning or deballasting operations, are deemed to present a major hazard to either marine resources or human health and, therefore, justify the prohibition of the discharge into the marine environment.

I;m just curious,
On a RoRo, there is no 'hazard' as such, from the vessel itself.
However, there may be hazards associated with the roll-on cargo that it transports.
Is this Hazard identification then attached to the vessel as 'cargo dependant'? (i.e: do they wait and see what they are transporting and then program it in to the AIS?)

Good Question

There was a vessel with a similar name tasked to the major pollution the Russians admittedly caused. I'd say it's him. He was " Celtic "something but can't remember exactly.


EI-SAR,
I think it was Celtic Tug's "Celtic Isle" which was sent out to the oil spill.I think it's usually based in Foynes.

I'd imagine that the IMO hazard category would need to be changed for each trip, they would have calculated it in advance, depending on the hazardous cargo quantities & types.
Seatruck Ferries, who may still own "Celtic Star" need to be informed when booking if hazardous cargo is being transported.Seatruck Ferries can accomodate nearly all types of hazardous cargo.The vessel itself becomes the hazard once the hazardous cargo is onboard.
