DATES: The Certificate of Alternative Compliance was issued on October 28, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose The offshore supply vessel GRANT CANDIES will be used for offshore supply operations. Full compliance with 72 COLREGS and Inland Rules Act will hinder the vessel’s ability to maneuver within close proximity of offshore platforms and conduct helicopter operations. The forward masthead light may be located forward of the helideck 10.37 meters above the hull. Placing the forward masthead light at the height as required by Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in a masthead light location that would interfere with helideck operations. In addition, the horizontal distance between the forward and aft masthead lights may be 32.845 meters. Placing the aft masthead light at the horizontal distance from the forward masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in an aft masthead light location directly over the aft cargo deck where it would interfere with loading and unloading operations. Furthermore, the sidelights may be placed 2.417 meters above the forward masthead light. Placing the sidelights lower than the forward masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 2(g) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules Act, would subject them to interference from the deck lights and obstruction by the helideck. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the vertical placement of the forward masthead light to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of 72 COLREGS. In addition, the Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the horizontal separation of the forward and aft masthead lights to deviate from the requirements of Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of 72 COLREGS. Furthermore, the Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the placement of the sidelights to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 2(g) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules Act.
