Abstract : Contained in the report are the results of investigations and studies of five alternative combinations of ships' waste offload system components as applied to actual field conditions of ships' presence and activity that occurred at the San Diego Naval Complex. The system components considered in the analyses included flexible hoses, floating pipeline units, environmental boxes, auxiliary craft, barges and tugs. The ships' wastes to be handled by the offload systems were (1) sanitary waste, (2) hotel waste, (3) oily waste, (4) industrial waste and (5) solid waste. From the Phase 1 work effort it had been concluded that these five wastes were best handled as three waste streams: (1) sanitary plus hotel, (2) oily, (3) containerized industrial plus solid. The results of the analyses are presented in terms of life cycle costs for all five combinations of system components.
