CLARIFICATION

THE SELF LOADING OF ROAD TANKERS

PRODUCT RECOVERY OPERATIONS

There has been much discussion in regard to the self-loading of road tankers in product recovery operations and the implications as outlined in ADG6 and ADG7. In discussions with the regulators it became apparent that changes to ADG7 were warranted as the wording in the latest version of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code could have very serious implications.

It is pleasing to be able to advise our CROIERG Membership that our representations have received a favourable hearing and the changes will be made

For further information please contact the CROIERG Secretary. Mob. 0428 627 777 Email eejoconn@bigpond,net.au

Below is the text as received from the regulator

It appears that there is now agreement to rectify the issues with Tanker self- loading as follows:

That Tanker self-loading ADGC6 allowed a vehicle’s engine to run during the transfer if it was driving a pump or compressor and the transfer was from the vehicle. In ADG7 this was changed to allow for the engine to run during transfer into and out of the vehicle. Jurisdictions noted this change unintentionally allowed for unsafe practice.

It is likely the change was made to allow for approved vacuum tankers however has broader unintended application

Agreed to reinstate ADGC6 wording, with separate allowance made for vacuum tankers that meet approved guidelines.

Gasoline and diesel fuel caught fire after a tanker truck rolled over on Alabama Highway 171 Friday morning.

Black smoke could be seen for miles while firefighters let the flames die out.

The driver of the truck was taken to DCH Regional Medical Centre, where he was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, said Northport Fire Rescue Chief Bart Marshall.

The northbound truck was hauling 4,500 gallons of diesel fuel and 3,500 gallons of gasoline, he said. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the one-vehicle accident, which occurred at 9:41 a.m.

Skid marks on the highway near the entrance of the Montgomery Farms subdivision led up to the location where a power pole stood. The pole was knocked over during the accident, cutting power to several nearby homes and traffic signals.

ROLLOVER CONTROL MANDATED ON DANGEROUS GOODS TANKERS IN NSW

To apply to all trailers. New and Old

September 16 2014 Sydney NSW

The New South Wales Government has announced that all dangerous good trailers travelling on roads in the state must be fitted with rollover control by the start of 2019.

The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has made the determination under dangerous goods regulations in response to a number of fatal fuel tanker collisions in NSW.

The EPA’s director of hazardous incidents and environmental health, Craig Lamberton, says the determination means that all existing dangerous goods tank trailers must be fitted with rollover control by January 1, 2019, if their owners want to keep operating them.

This is in addition to an earlier determination requiring that all new dangerous goods tank trailers manufactured on or after July this year need to be fitted with rollover control.

Rollover control can also be known as ‘Roll stability system’ or ‘Roll stability function’. 

"Rollover control reduces the risk of vehicle rollover and is consistent with good industry practice both here and internationally," Lamberton says. 

"The decision to require retrofitting of rollover control to tanker trailers by January 1, 2019 is an Australian first and fully supported by the National Bulk Tanker Association and the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association. 

"Other states had agreed in principle to this initiative in late 2013 but they couldn’t agree on the final draft determination, so the NSW EPA has taken the initiative to make the determination on its own. 

"The EPA has been in extensive consultation with the transport industry and the national dangerous goods Competent Authorities Panel on these changes – given that the trailers in question travel across borders and may be licensed in another state.  

"The five-year period allows for existing dangerous goods tank trailer owners to appropriately schedule the changes to their fleet."

A COUPLE HAS FILMED A FREIGHT TRAIN SMASHING INTO A STRICKEN TRUCK AS THEY WERE WAITING AT A LEVEL CROSSING IN THE UNITED STATES

October 7, 2014 Louisiana USA

"He's stuck, I think," a man is heard saying of the truck, which was stranded on the tracks as the train approached, horn blaring, in Mer Rouge, Louisiana.

"Holy mother of moo moo," a woman is heard saying as the train ploughs into the truck, ripping it to pieces.

"Oh my God, tell me he got out, just tell me he got out," she said of the truck driver.

"It was like watching TV," she added later.

Two engines and 17 carriages of the 87-carriage train, which was carrying pressurised argon gas, derailed, local media said.

The truck driver managed to escape while the train conductor was being treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries, reports said.

Fifty surrounding houses were reportedly evacuated for about two hours over concerns a tanker of pressurised gas might explode.

A clean-up is underway.

WRONG-WAY DRIVER CRASHED INTO 18-WHEELER, KILLING TRUCKER, NOFD SAYS (Louisiana)

Inspecting the damage

Inspecting the damage

Police picked up a woman at her house Friday who they believe fled the scene of a fiery fatal wreck she caused in the St. Roch area after driving the wrong way down a one-way street, authorities said.

Lt. Anthony Micheu, who commands NOPD's Traffic Unit, said the woman will face criminal charges in the crash that killed a male truck driver. Micheu declined to identify the woman or to specify the likely charges, citing an ongoing investigation. Police gave the woman a breathalyser test and drew her blood to determine whether she was intoxicated, but Micheu didn't release results. 

The woman, driving a black Acura SUV, was headed the wrong way -- lakebound -- on Port Street around 2:30 a.m., Micheu said. He noted that there isn't a stop sign at Port and North Claiborne Avenue because Port is a one-way street.

She made a left onto North Claiborne, colliding with an 18-wheeler that, according to the New Orleans Fire Department, was pulling an 8,500-gallon fuel tank. The crash flattened the truck's tire and caused the truck driver to lose control. The 18-wheeler smashed into a concrete pillar holding a Quicky's gas station sign at the intersection of Claiborne and Franklin avenues, authorities said. The sign was in the gas station's parking lot. 

A fire exploded in the truck's cab, where the driver was, and spread to the bed of the tanker. The driver didn't have a chance to escape the truck before it was engulfed in flames, Micheu said.

CATASTROPHIC FIRE AVERTED AT LALAK CHOWK (Pakistan)

Oil tanker on fire

September 24, 2014 Lahore Pakistan

Two major fire incidents took place in the city on Monday. The first took place at around 12:15pm in the basement of Central Model School on Ratigan Road, which had been rented out to the Election Commission of Pakistan as a storage room. The second took place in a fuel tanker parked at a petrol station at Lalak Chowk, Defence House Authority. Rescue-1122 officials said that an oil tanker was in the middle of pumping fuel to the main underground oil tank at the fuel station in the afternoon when it caught fire.

Containment Superintendent Nadeem Khokar said the driver of the oil tanker managed to drive the tanker away from the fuel station. He parked the tanker a few metres away next to a construction site on Lalak Chowk. He said it appeared as if the fire had erupted due to the use of mobile phones at the petrol station. Khokar commended the driver’s courage in driving away a burning fuel truck and said he had averted a major fire hazard.

Sajjad said that the firefighting squad managed to put out the fire in the tanker after hectic efforts for an hour. He said more than 24,000 litres of petrol had gone up in flames and the tanker had burned down completely.

The Rescue-1122 spokesperson said that the cooling mechanism at the fuel station had been damaged. The walls and sign boards at the front of the fuel station’s mart were burnt as well.

IWAKUNI HARBOR MAINTAINS OPERATIONAL READINESS; CLEAR WATERS, NO SPILLS (Japan)

September 30, 2014 Iwakuni, Japan

Sailors began chipping away pesky barnacles and other sea debris off the various vessels at the Iwakuni Harbor, Sept. 29, 2014, aboard Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan. 

To increase the U.S. – Japan alliance, these sailors maintain their boats to ensure a timely and efficient response in case any fuel leaks into the harbor. 

"If there’s an oil spill it that goes beyond the harbor, it is now in international waters, which means we’ll have an international incident. Our job is to contain it within our harbor," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher Cruz, leading petty officer for oil response with Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron. "It hurts the environment. Anything that’s from the field that leaks into the water or anything that leaks into the pond, we have to respond to it because it’s our fuel, our responsibility." 

Seaman Halon Hamilton, an oil response crew member with H&HS, said there are several boats used for spill clean-ups including but not limited to; Utility Boats which are used for fast oil responses and towing booms to ensure spills are contained, a Patrol Harbor Boat used as a fast action assault boat, the Outboard Performance Craft which is a fast response boat similar to UB’s except smaller to squeeze into tighter spaces such as under a pier and Skimmer’s which is the main boat for removing any fuel or oil out of the water.

KLONDIKE HIGHWAY CLOSURE FRIDAY DUE TO LNG TANKER ROLLOVER (Alaska)

Dawson City Rollover

Dawson City Rollover

October 2, 2014 Dawson City Alaska

The North Klondike Highway in and out of Dawson City will close Friday, instead of Thursday night, as crews deal with a rolled LNG tanker. Delayed equipment means crews will not be able to deal with the overturned tanker until tomorrow.

Dawson City fire chief Jim Regimbal says experts have flown in to oversee the cargo.

"Technical experts from both the emergency response action plan team and the company that's actually responsible for the product chartered a flight and flew in together yesterday afternoon and determined the emergency is being handled correctly in ensuring everyone's safety," he said.

There is no immediate danger and no leak. Regimbal says the closure will happen Friday from about 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and then again from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Quantum Murray is the B.C. Company dealing with the emergency response. Another company, Fortis, is responsible for the product.

The truck was transporting the LNG to the Northwest Territories Power Corporation's generating facilities at Inuvik, N.W.T. when it rolled Tuesday not far from the bridge at Dawson City.

An NTPC spokesperson says the truck holds about 53,000 litres of LNG, enough to power Inuvik for about a day and a half.

FUEL TANKER CRASHES INTO REPAIR SHOP (Saudi Arabia)

October 8, 2014 Saudi Arabia

A fuel tanker crashed into a repair shop after the driver lost control on Jazan-Sabya Highway, said Civil Defense acting spokesman Lt. Raad Al-Rayani.

Miraculously, no one was injured even the driver, whose vehicle overturned because of the crash.

Civil Defense firefighters controlled the situation immediately and prevented fuel from leaking to nearby places.

The Saudi Electricity Company Jazan branch was asked to cut off power in the neighbourhood of the accident site because there was a high-voltage station in the vicinity of the repair shop.

Fuel was emptied into another tanker while the driver was arrested.

ANOTHER FUEL TANKER ACCIDENT IN IBADAN (Nigeria)

October 25, 2014 Ibadan Nigeria

Scene of tanker incident in Nigeria

What could have resulted in another fire disaster was miraculously averted this morning at the Efunsatan roundabout, Challenge, Ibadan when a 33,000 fuel tanker laden with kerosene crashed less than two kilometres away from the scene of the Molete fire incident of two weeks ago.

The crash which occurred around 8:05 am, did not record any causality though .Residents were full of praise unto the God almighty that the content was not petroleum. There was pandemonium in the neighborhoud as motorists raced to remove their cars to a safe haven as the content of the ranker, erroneously suspected to be petrol, gushed out in large quantity.

As God would have it, the content found a channel of escape in the deep drainage recently constructed as part of the new Ibadan ring-road project of the Oyo State government.
When The Street Journal visited the scene of the accident, residents were seen scooping kerosene from the tanker as no security operative was sighted to maintain law and order in the area.

Investigation revealed that the ensuing disaster would have been worse that the recent Molete fire incident where about 50 people lost their lives. Over 30 buses parked at the Ijebu motor park adjacent the scene of the accident would have been consumed by fire with the occupants. The environmental sanitation exercise being observed has however, prevented commuters to be at the motor park, but the drivers and touts would have been most vulnerable.
