Trans Ocean the first company to comply with the Container Owners Association (COA) recommended Code of Practice for flexitanks

The Code of Practice consists of five parts including; material testing, container selection, container labelling, incident management and training.

Following a process of review, implementation and audit, Trans Ocean became the very first flexitank operator in the industry to submit all documents to the COA, including independent audit reports where required.

“This is a significant milestone, and the path leading to this achievement has been both interesting and challenging”, said Brendan McKenna, Hillebrand Group Board Member.

“We have made significant investments in equipment, and have amended certain of our working practices in order to comply. It has encouraged us to not only take a critical look at the way we do things, but also to create written procedures that standardise our design, manufacturing and quality process across our global engineering and manufacturing footprint leading to tangible benefits for our customers worldwide.”
 
Trans Ocean leads in the provision of liquid bulk logistics, delivering environmental and economical supply chain solutions to a diverse range of customers.
 
Its flexitank products are exclusively designed and manufactured in our own facilities in South Africa, China and Malaysia, which they say, gives  complete care and control over equipment quality, supply and planning.
