Abstract : The purpose of the study is to develop the most cost effective system of offloading sanitary, hotel, oily, industrial and solid wastes from ships to shore facilities. The studies presented herein represent Phase 1 of the study which addressed itself to defining the problem, conceiving alternative solutions, performing comparative analysis of the alternatives and selecting a system for further development. The problem was defined in terms of ships presence, ships waste generation rates, existing shore facilities and field conditions of performance based on data collected in the field from the Newport, Norfolk, Pearl Harbor and San Diego Naval complexes. Fifteen different concepts were developed for consideration as the ships' waste offload system and were presented in the form of sketches and verbal descriptions. The concepts were compared in terms of technical, operating and economical considerations.
