ES-TRIN Article 3.03 (2); Article 7.03(8); Article 10.02(1); Article 15.01(4); Article 19.02(6) - Normal operation and operation in an emergency

Question 1:

What is the interpretation of “normal operation”?


The ES-TRIN’s requirements are minimum requirements concerning construction, handling and manoeuvring, as well as for equipment. It may be assumed that a vessel is only able to operate safely if all requirements are satisfied. Conversely, non-compliance means that full operation requirements are not met.
All propulsion, steering and monitoring installations (e.g. propulsion engine, steering system etc), and all safety-related equipment (e.g. anchor gear, bilge pump, radio telephone, fire-extinguishing systems, etc.) must work.

Question 2:

What is the interpretation of “operation in an emergency”?


Operation in an emergency occurs when one or more statutorily required on-board installations or equipment no longer function properly. The same applies when the emergency electrical power source is switched on and is able to supply the consumer equipment with energy for at least 30 minutes. The craft shall be capable of making steerageway under its own power while achieving a speed of not less than 6.5 km/h and retaining manoeuvrability in accordance with ESI-II-11. Necessary repairs should be carried out at the earliest opportunity.
