The cargo compressor space has the following caracteristics: - It is provided with one door on each side. - In addition to natural ventilation, this space is fitted with adequate means for artificial ventilation that is all the time in service (two fans). - Ship’s staff has daily routine duties in the cargo compressor room (said space is frequently visited at sea and during port stay).

Although this space is among the listing on IMO cicrular 1050 (27), it should not be considered as an enclosed space.

In order to ensure safe operations, an instruction should be permanently posted at the entrance of the cargo compressor room.

In the instruction, it should be required: - First to ensure that the ventilation is operational. - Second check of the atmosphere. - Finally, prior to enter said space, a notice must be given to OOW at the bridge or CCR.
