Offloading operations are taking place in more and more challenging environments. And in some of the most challenging locations offloading operations are faced with rapid changing environmental conditions like squalls and solitons (rapidly changing currents). The MARIN study looked at the effect of these events on a moored tanker, assisted by a single pull-back tug, with a particular focus on the safety aspects.
