Capacity Plan


A plan of the spaces available for cargo, fuel, fresh water, water ballast, etc, and containing cubic or weight capacity lists for such spaces and a scale showing deadweight capacities at varying draughts and displacements.

It would be difficult and inconvenient to gather all those information and place them on one plan in a clear and legible manner. In addition, all these pieces of information can be found on various other drawings. To avoid repeating data and multiplying existing documents it is recommended to create a Capacity Plan as a set of documents listed below:

1. General Part

2. Coordinate System

3. Draught Marks

4. Load Line Mark and Deadweight Scale

5. Tank Space Information

6. Cargo Space Information
