INTERTANKO REPRESENTATIVES MEET USCG ADMIRAL PLUTA

Earlier this week INTERTANKO representatives met Rear Admiral Paul Pluta, the newly appointed Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety and Environmental Protection.  Admiral Pluta succeeded Admiral Robert North at the beginning of May and took the opportunity of a visit to the IMO for the MSC meetings to attend a dinner hosted by Peter Swift, Svein Ringbakken and Dragos Rauta.  He was joined by Joseph Angelo, Director of Standards, Office of Marine Safety and Environmental Protection, to discuss tanker issues in general, specifics of the USCG programmes and international developments. Information on Rear Admiral Pluta is available on the website http://www.uscg.mil/hq/g-m/radmpluta.pdf
