TMSA Review by IMT
08/02/2011
Starting with the 8th of February 2011 International Marine Transportation (IMT) of London, an ExxonMobil Subsidiary, conducted a TMSA review at our technical management offices at Armona Denizcilik in Istanbul.

Aim of the TMSA review meeting is to provide IMT and thereby the oil major ExxonMobil with the assurance that the key management systems and objectives, pertaining to our fleet vessels and technical operations, are in place, effective and are a true reflection of our TMSA submission.

The meeting involved key members of our management team, the senior management represented by Lorenz Weinstabl and Capt. Levent Karsan  the Quality/Safety manager & DPA Capt. Gökhan Özgal and the Vetting superintendent Capt. Bülent İlbay.

The Resume review was followed by a Conclude and Collate Review, observations discussed in the Close out meeting with all the participants.

TMSA Gap-Analysis
24/01/2011
The Tanker Management and Self Assessment (TMSA) programme first introduced in 2004, provides ship operators with a means to improve and measure their own management systems.

The programme encourages ship operators to assess their safety management systems against listed performance indicators and best practices. The results of these assessments can then be used to develop an improvement plan, using the stages of attainment described in the programme, to achieve safety and environmental excellence. These days it is the primary measure used by the petro-chemical customers when selecting vessels to charter.

With the start of the first ship technically managed, the MT Atlantis Andaman, OCIMF’s TMSA programme was adapted in June 2009 to the assessment of Armona Denizcilik’s management system. In January 2011, Captain Chris Allport, an external auditor from Hudson Marine, joined us in our offices for a period of four days to independently measure our management systems status compared with the levels of the TMSA requirements and to report on our gaps.

The visit was considered by our team to be a full success, as it objectively identified a number of gaps in our management system, which when closed will significantly improve our system and controls. In the process four TMSA stage 2 gaps were identified which will be addressed immediately in order that Armona’s overall TMSA status is complete at this level and our score of 2.4 (in a scale of 4) will be recognised commercially and lead to more business opportunities.

Some of the gaps that will be addressed over the coming months will provide Armona with a more dynamic system of management which will use Key Performance Indicators as measure to regularly signal whether we are meeting our safety and environmental targets.  This will enable us all to become proactive and take early action to prevent declining trends becoming a problem or resulting in an incident or accident. We will start comparing our performance with a cross section of similar tanker operators so that we can benchmark ourselves against industry. Also we will be encouraging you to identify our Best Practices which will be shared, not only with our colleagues across the Armona fleet, but also with the maritime industry. In this way we aim to achieve our goals of a consistent performance delivering safety and environmental excellence.

The last of a series of four 6400 dwt Tankers was delivered to Almeira Shipping Ltd on June 6th, 2010. The MT Atlantis Almeira, a so called Chemical / Products Tanker, is designed by Delta Marine and can carry around 6000 tons of cargo in 10 + 2 fully independent 7172 cubic meter large cargo tanks.

The tanks are coated with Marineline, an advanced Polymer coating which is far more resistant to chemicals than the normally used epoxy coating.

The Vessel is built to the rules of Bureau Veritas, advanced features are the hull structure and machinery strengthened for Ice class 1C, the outfitting with a Nitrogen generator to inert or pad the cargo tanks during loading or discharging, the possibility to continue to drive the ship with an auxiliary propulsion system in the event of a main engine failure or to assure a high level of crew comfort with the additional notation of the highest possible degree in “Comfort vibration”. Her length overall is 109,0 m, her breadth 16,8 m and in loaded condition she will have a draft of 6,65 m. She is driven by a single medium speed main engine of 2665 kW turning at 750 rpm and burning Heavy Fuel Oil of 380 centi Stoke which acts on a controllable pitch propeller and when fully laden can provide a service speed of about 13 knots.

Armona Denizcilik acted as main contractor of this vessel built at Istanbul Shipyard with the newbuilding number 22. Armona’s job consisted of preparing the building specification, design of machinery and superstructure spaces, procurement of all items, classification related matters, quality control, sea trials and mobilization.  

We would like to express our thanks to the team around Captain Karsan which have worked with so much enthusiasm under the aggravated conditions of the shipyard to ensure delivery of another top quality product into our fleet.
