BSM participated as a speaker at the Asian Tanker Conference, a two-day event held in Singapore on March 27-28, 2018.
The Asian Tanker Conference is an annual gathering of professionals from across the entire tanker sector in Asia. The conference was brought to Asia on the back of a very successful tanker focused conference held annually in London, Tanker Shipping and Trade Exhibition and Awards.
Raymond Peter, Deputy Managing Director of BSM Singapore, represented BSM in the session focusing on chemical tanker management. BSM has an experience of over 40 years in managing all types of tankers, with 73% of the Company’s managed fleet being product/chemical tanker vessels.
Raymond shared the Company’s expertise within this vessel segment, with an emphasis on the types of tank coatings there are and the tank cleaning processes and standards, providing answers to the question ‘Is clean, clean enough?’ and explaining the washing water analysis versus the wall wash inspection. He highlighted the importance of tank coating maintenance, covering topics on cargo contamination and delivery shortfall.
More than 150 professionals from the shipping industry, including shipowners, charterers, managers, technical experts and suppliers, attended this conference.
