Our chairman Capt. Andrew Cassels received the Lifetime Achievement award for 2019 at the Tanker Awards held in London.
The Kockumation Group, who provides cargo-handling products for the tanker industry, sponsored Andrew for the award due to his previous work as chairman of OCIMF and vice-president of safety and operational risk at BP.
The award recognises Andrew’s achievements such as setting up the Ship Inspection Report (SIRE) Programme which has focused the tanker industry awareness on the importance of meeting satisfactory tanker quality and ship safety standards.
Andrew was also seen as being instrumental in the following stage of the Tanker Management and Self-Assessment (TMSA) Programme which provides companies with a means to measure and improve their own safety management systems.
The Tanker awards took place after the Tanker Shipping and Trade conference held at the Amba Hotel Marble Arch, London.
