World Tankers Wins Lloyd’s Register BWMP

Tuesday, March 05, 2002
Singapore-based World Tankers Management is the first tanker operator in Singapore to have its fleet certified under Lloyd's Register's new BWMP operational notation for ballast water management. In recognition of this achievement, at a formal ceremony in Singapore, World Tankers was awarded with a certificate from Lloyd’s Register commending them for their proactive approach to ballast water management. Accepting the award, Michael Bruce, Managing Director of World Tankers said: “We have always striven to find ways to differentiate ourselves in the tanker industry. I believe this award recognises World Tankers’ proactive commitment to meeting the highest standards of ballast water management, without waiting for future legislation to be enacted.” John Curley, business manager for Lloyd's Register South East Asia, said: “World Tankers has most definitely differentiated itself by voluntarily choosing to assign the Lloyd’s Register BWMP notation to their fleet. This achievement demonstrates Michael Bruce’s outstanding ongoing commitment to a safe and environmentally responsible tanker industry.” World Tankers Marine Superintendent and Fleet DPA, Captain Sahai, explained why they chose Lloyd’s Register for the job: “We selected Lloyd's Register for the task as its ballast water management plan seemed to address the risk of exchanging ballast in the open sea in the most structured way. World Tankers’ confidence in seagoing operations is further boosted by this certification which also reflects on Lloyd’s Register’s commitment to safety, quality and the environment.” The Lloyd's Register BWMP notation is a recognized industry standard that provides an appropriate solution to the potential loss of hull integrity resulting from unplanned loads arising from ballast water transfer. It provides a structured and auditable way of dealing with unique loadings experienced in seagoing ballast operations, and gives both owners and ports confidence – helping to ensure business as normal without compromising on recognised environmental regulation.
