Equipment Handling

Overview:

The Incident Owner takes custody of the equipment at either the quayside (mobilised by vessel) or cargo handlers at the departure airport (mobilised by air).

The Incident Owner will require a range of information to safely and effectively handle the equipment.

This section details the information provided by OSRL in the event that the equipment is mobilised:

  • Equipment build standards
  • Lifting certificates
  • Handling guidelines
  • Shipping skid specifications (if applicable)
  • Container specifications (if applicable)
  • Sea fastening guidelines
  • Handover certificates

 

Storage:
The Containment Toolkit is stored in suitable transportation containers/pallets/reels at storage locations around the globe ready to be transported to the quayside or nearest departure airport.
The locations of the equipment have been chosen based on their proximity to mobilisation ports and airports in order to limit the logistical challenges involved in global deployment.

For more details about the OSRL bases, visit the Location Section in the Introduction.
