Technical webinar: of HM50 - Guidelines For The Preparation Of Tanks And Lines For Marine Tank Vessels Carrying Petroleum And Refined Products

Used by the oil industry worldwide, this guidance is used as a vital reference material by shipowners, charterers and cargo inspectors when assessing the tank preparation carried out between voyages. It was prepared primarily with the aim of maintaining product quality using minimum effective tank preparation procedures, thereby reducing the use of marine bunkers and the generation of waste wash water. The guide also offers practical advice on the variety of cargos we see in the modern shipping industry.

The guide has undergone a thorough revision to reflect the changes in specifications and the increased use of renewable fuels such as HVO and Sustainable Aviation Kerosene. In addition, the cleaning tables have been separated into three categories to reflect the type of cargo being loaded  and so we encourage anyone with an interest in ship tank cleaning / preparation, such as energy trading companies, ship owners and independent inspection companies, to join the webinar.
