A Century of Tankers – the perfect seasonal gift!

The book 'A Century of Tankers' has been highly praised by the international maritime media. In an easy, entertaining style, it describes the growth of the tanker industry set against the background of the oil industry and the political and economic events which have shaped its progress since the first American boom in the early 1860s. The story is complex and fascinating, and is of great interest not only to tanker enthusiasts, but also to anyone involved in shipping or related industries.

Reasonably priced at only USD 65 per copy, with discounts for larger orders, 'A Century of Tankers' is a gift that is sure to be appreciated by colleagues, customers or friends. An exclusive leather-bound edition is available on request (USD 80 per copy). We can also make your gift more personal by embossing your name on the cover or enclosing an elegant card/bookmark with your logo and personal message.

First twoEnvironmental Awareness Guides for Seafarers

INTERTANKOs first two Environmental Awareness Guides for Seafarers are now available. Developed through the Environmental Committee, the Guides focus on explaining the background to the invasive species in ballast water and the concerns with anti-fouling coatings.

These Guides are aimed at increasing awareness of the environmental issues faced by the shipping industry. The Guides explain the problem from its root biological cause, its operational implications and the potential regulatory, technical and operational solutions. They are aimed at those who work on the ships and those who are responsible for carrying out the day-to-day operations and procedures crucial to the safe and environmentally sound running of a ship. Having a basic understanding of the environment promotes a responsible approach to ship board operations and reduces the potential for pollution resulting from a lack of environmental awareness.

A Guide to the Vetting Process, 5th edition – Have you ordered copies for your fleet?

INTERTANKO handles many enquiries for up-to-date information on the different ship inspection systems carried out by oil companies, port state control authorities, insurers, underwriters and other bodies. Such inspections form an essential part of the tanker vetting process.

To overcome the lack of available information on vetting inspection systems, and to assist tanker crews and onshore personnel, INTERTANKO has published an expanded fifth edition of its ‘A Guide to the Vetting Process’. The publication provides a concise yet comprehensive description of the principal tanker vetting systems.

INTERTANKO recommends that a copy of its Vetting Guide be placed onboard each vessel and in shore offices to assist tanker crews and personnel ashore to better understand, and to be better prepared for vetting inspections (discount available for large orders).
