For work where specialist assistance is needed, the Company always employs specialists which are well known to the market. The Company is also well aware of the fact that specialist areas supervision requires more attention and diligence. The Company motivates its staff for such a work.

It  employs ship’s senior officers about two months before the delivery of the vessel and the remaining personnel join the vessel 2-4 weeks before the delivery of  the vessel. As the ship staff’s experience is very important for the safe and easy operation of the ships, the Company seeks information from the sea staff operating on Company fleet. The senior officers on board are also involved in the site supervision up to their capacity.

The Company works with the first class suppliers for the construction of the tankers and aims to have good relationships with such parties. Detailed records of previous correspondence is maintained for this. Opinions of the ship staff about the equipment which has direct effect on the operation of the vessels are always required at least verbally by the Company.

The company aware of the importance, from the economic and environmental points of view, of the need to reduce, as far as possible, the fuel consumption of ships.

By practising energy conservation the quantity of energy used is reduced while achieving a similar outcome of end use. This practice may result in increase of financial capital and environmental value.

Masters should instill in all those under their command the importance and necessity of maintaining  the level of fuel reductions already instigated and, perhaps more importantly, of continually looking at other areas of a ship's operation where potential fuel cost savings could realistically be achieved.

The safety of ship and personnel must always take priority over fuel conservation. Any measures taken must only be introduced after careful assessment has confirmed that there will be no adverse impact upon safety of operations.Modifications to machinery or plant for fuel conservation purposes must not be undertaken without prior approval from us.

Energy conservation an important part of the debate global over climate change and the replacement of non-renewable resources with renewable energy.

It is the our policy to conserve energy, thus preserving resources and reducing expenses. It is a policy to do predictive maintenance of all fuel consumers  and to use genuine spare parts while overhauling ships machinery.

The company’s Energy Conservation Policy applies to all aspects of operation and includes all technical, operational and organizational personnel.
