RINA Spearheads Watertight Safety Debate

The Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA) has announced the formation of an international conference for the purpose of exploring and promoting improvements in watertight integrity in the maritime industry. The aim of the conference is to stimulate joint cooperation of designers, manufacturers, regulatory authorities, classification societies, insurance companies, materials experts and ship owners and operators in order to improve the watertightness of complete ship structures.

The conference will cover several areas, including equipment design loads and features, materials and manufacture, operation and inspection maintenance. RINA Circle 210 on Reader Service Card invites participation from those interested in joint action, in order to improve ship survivability and prevent possible losses of life. Watertight Integrity and Ship Survivability will be held on November 21-22, 1996, in London.
