Baltic Sea being closed sea is particularly vulnerable to such casualties, and if it happens the whole life in the sea could be destroyed. Risk of tanker casualty in the Baltic Sea is rather high. It is essential to be prepared for such a casualty and a system of salvage operation should be developed that may be used in case of emergency. The paper describes proposal of the lay-out of such system and summarizes important problems that are relevant for development of particular tasks related to the system.
