INTERTANKO Technical Seminar - Mumbai

Last week at the head office of Essar Shipping Limited in Mumbai, INTERTANKO held a small technical work shop. The day long seminar focused mainly on the technical aspects of ship operations and in particular the behaviour of crude oil at sea, VOC emissions, COW operations and effects of current environmental legislation on tanker operations.

With representatives from Essar Shipping Ltd, Reliance Industries, Pratibha Shipping and Great Eastern Shipping Co. Ltd, the discussion was lively with a focus mainly on the development in quality of shore side operations. In particular some members expressed concern over the increasing quality in the tanker sector not being matched by the terminal operators. Further discussion followed on the need to ensure quality services from other shore side operations such as pilots and tug operators.

INTERTANKO would like to thank all those who participated in the seminar.
