Relations Become Traditions
03/05/2018
The friendship between Bureau Veritas Istanbul & Armona Denizcilik is hard to beat.
 
During the construction of our latest newbuildings: Augusta and Alicante, we realized that relations go well-beyond ‘business’. Moreover, our relationship has anchored a tradition of combining the management of Bureau Veritas Istanbul and Armona Denizcilik to celebrate the start and the end of the yearly fish season: simply called Rakı & Balık (Fish).

A substantial part of Armona’s business evolution has been accompanied by the staff of Bureau Veritas (BV) Istanbul. Relations began with the first newbuildings in 2003, lasting over 1.5 decades till today.

Today, we own and manage 12 ships. Our size and attitude as a client to BV Istanbul, has smelted us together as a family.
 
BV Istanbul knows first-hand that our commitment is to high levels of standard, quality and no compromises in safety.

We thank them for their strong cooperation and dedication in all issues of certificate renewals. They tend to happen at breathtaking speeds under and above water.

It was a great evening! Thank you to all staff, present and not present of BV Istanbul. You are part of the success of Armona & Atlantis Tankers.

Only the Finest
03/05/2018
The turbot (scophthalmus maximus) marks the end of the Fish Season. Weighing a staggering 4.6kgs, it was the largest purchase of the night. Further purchases included an angler fish weighing around the same size as the turbot, and lastly 2 kg of red mullets.

Cafer Tekkan, the Marine Manager of Bureau Veritas in Turkey, and Lorenz Weinstabl, CEO of Armona Denizcilik, were of opinion that they had exceeded the limits of what a team of 10 participants could eat. However, to the surprise of all, it could have been even more!

Shell Maritime PnS 2018
15/02/2018
Armona Denizcilik's Deputy CEO participated in Shell's Maritime Partners in Safety Conference 2018 at the Hilton in Rotterdam. The conference spanned 2 days of intense workshops, informative speeches and interactive role-plays; all of which stressed the importance of safety leadership by the top-level management.

The conference addressed Shell's fear of having plateaued in our vision towards a Zero Incident Industry. Therefore they appealed to us during the conference to strive for a mission of safety leadership that we as leaders are responsible for spreading. Our actions matter more than we realize: "Safety starts with you, or it does not" (Graehame Henderson, VP Shipping & Maritime Shell). As leaders, we are expected to change behaviors and habits of our community (whether it be personal or professional).

This can be achieved by targeting the 3 R's:
  1. Repetition
  2. Retention
  3. Recurrence
Armona's leaders pledge to become safety leaders and coaches for their community and have identified that genuine care for people is of utmost importance to them.

Lastly, the Armona family aims to empower all its people to act in a manner where safety takes precedent in their life choices.

Pictured at Table 5 during the 'Care for People' Workshop from Left to Right: Marlon Weinstabl (Armona Denizcilik), Anke Bestmann (Imperial Transport Solutions), Jan Antonsson (Shell), Jan Klonki (Imperial Logistics International), Paul Maclons (Amsol), Ertug Karagoz (Genel Denizcilik)

New Year's Party
28/12/2017
The Armona Denizcilik & Atlantis Tankers family celebrated the upcoming New Year of 2018.

It was the first celebration in our new office premises as all on-shore and some off-shore personnel gathered to blow off some steam in a very eventful 2017.

Drinks were served at the bar on the 6th-floor terrace and Kofte (Turkish meatballs) were prepared by the Ali Baba cooks with extraordinary views over the Bosphorus.

The festivities started at 15:00 and lasted till 21:30. A mixture of international charts and nostalgic Turkish music set the scene for some excellent dancing.

We want to thank all of our hardworking and loyal staff for their achievements and willpower they have shown in 2017.

Our aim is to foster a family culture that is built on trust, respect, and ethics. This is our inalienable foundation in achieving excellence. Our journey will continue in the years to come, as we master hardships and push to achieve better results.

On behalf of the Atlantis/Armona family, we wish you a healthy, safe and prosperous 2018!
