Stockholm Agreement Significant Wave Height

1.1 The provisions of Regulation II-1/8.2.3 are taken into account, taking into account the effects of a hypothetical amount of seawater, which would have accumulated on the first deck over the construction water line of the loading rudder space or the special cargo space defined in Rule II-2/3 within the meaning of Regulation II-2/3, which is considered damaged (hereafter referred to as the “damaged ro-bridge”). The other requirements of Regulation II-1/B/8 must not be met when applying the stability standard in this schedule. The amount of supposed seawater accumulated is calculated on the basis of a water surface of a fixed height: b) when the edge of the damaged compartment is submerged, the calculation is based on a fixed height above the surface of the silent water for all heel angles and all cutting angles; (10) Eight countries in northern Europe, including seven Member States of the Community, agreed on 28 February 1996 in Stockholm to establish a higher level of stability for deteriorating passenger vessels, in order to take into account the effects of the accumulation of water on the Ro-Ro bridge and to allow the vessel to survive to a significant wave height of 4 metres in states heavier than the SOLAS 90 standard. (3) In cases where the crosswall/cross barrier is damaged, the water accumulated on the bridge must have a common surface plan on the deck on either side of the damaged bulkhead or damaged barrier at height hw (see Figure 9). 1. The amount of water bridges accumulated may be reduced in addition to a possible reduction, in accordance with paragraph 1.1, for operations in regulated geographical areas. These areas are designated based on the significant swell height (hs) in which the area is determined in accordance with Article 5. 2. For passenger-bound ro-ro vessels operating in maritime areas with a significant swell height of 1.5 metres or less, compliance with the requirements of SoLAS Convention Regulation II-1/8 (SOLAS) is considered equivalent to compliance with the specific stability requirements set out in Schedule I.

This certificate is issued by the Flag State Administration and indicates the significant swell height to which the vessel can meet the specific stability requirements, as well as the surface for which the certificate was originally issued. 1. Member States establish, no later than six months before the Article 13 date, a list of maritime areas under their jurisdiction and the corresponding values of significant wave heights. 3.3 For each peak period, at least 5 tests must be conducted.
