 Description ASSESSMENT CASE STUDY The case study you will use for your assessment (AE1) will be the Torrey Canyon incident of 1967. All information relating to the location, initial incident, weather and sea state will remain exactly as they were in March 1967. However the vessel specifications have been changed to reflect a vessel of the same age in 2018. Please note you are to include a review of the initial incident as it took place in 1967, the response to deal with the spill and who was responsible for dealing with the spill. You should then put together a full response strategy that includes all the requirements identified within the assessment brief, but for the year 2018. VESSEL SPECIFICATIONS for 2018 m.v.
