INTERTANKO’s MD and its ISTEC Chairman participate in Environmental Summit

The Chairman of INTERTANKO’s Safety, Technical and Environmental Committee (ISTEC), Henrik von Platen, and the Association’s Managing Director, Dr Peter Swift, joined other speakers and panellists, including the IMO’s Marine Environment Director, Miguel Palomares, National Maritime Research Institute (Japan) Director, Koichi Yosida, Green Award’s Managing Director, Jan Fransen, and ICS Chairman, Spyros Polemis, at an Environmental Summit this week in London.


The seminar was organised by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) as part of its international consultation programme. Much of the summit focused on the revision of MARPOL Annex VI, and also the IMO’s programme on greenhouse gas issues, which attracted wide discussion.
