It’s an Inert Gas System


Inert gas system: A system of preventing any explosion in the cargo tanks of a tanker by replacing the cargo, as it is pumped out, by an inert gas, sometimes by flue gas from ship boilers. Gas freeing must be carried out subsequently if workers have to enter the empty tanks.
