Reliable equipment at the jetty is vital for safe transfer of cargo between the ship and shore. Maintenance of this equipment is particularly important because of the harsh environmental conditions often experienced.

This guide provides information on the basic function, failure, inspection, maintenance and repair of all the key equipment items and systems. It is not intended to provide guidance on safety management procedures or to replace the manufacturers’ instruction manuals. However, it is designed to provide a description of a typical jetty and the likely faults that may occur if maintenance work is not carried out regularly.

The new version incorporates updated references and lessons learned, which are reflected in detailed guidance on inspection procedures, including the degradation mechanisms for topside jetty equipment and underlying structure. It also advises on the use of alternative and emerging technologies to manage the integrity of the assets.
