My company is preparing plans for installation of an additional sea chest on a large vessel. The sea chest in question will be located in a ballast tank with reach rod access to the ballast supply butterfly valve. ABS regulations require means for clearing the strainer plates which is typically done through compressed air connections however with the sea chest being located in a ballast tank there would be no access to compartment and I am at a loss as to how this would be achieved. Anyone have any thoughts?
