TANKERS & TANKER OPERATIONS

Tanker Vetting surveys:

We perform independent vetting of Tanker Vessels, assessing the condition of the vessel, performance of their crews, and general safety on board. Our surveyors have detailed tanker knowledge and have previously sailed and operated tankers at sea. We perform these vetting surveys for a variety of clients, and for a variety of reasons like on-hire/off-hire, change of class, change of P&I clubs, and independent audits.

Crude and Product Cargo Measurement surveys:

We check both vessels arrival and departure cargo conditions, gauging quantity of cargo on board. We also check tank cleanliness and suitability to load next cargo.

Cargo Contamination Issues:

We investigate cargo co-mingling, and cross-contamination issues. We track the history of cargo loaded and after analysis determine nature, cause and extent of the contamination so that a commercial settlement can be enacted.

Ship to Ship Transfer Operations / Lighterage:

We can plan and assist the master in the off-shore double-banking operation of two tanker vessels. The operation will include the placement of pneumatic Yokohama type fenders, connection of transfer hoses and the safe transfer of petroleum products from one vessel to another.
