Miles & Smiles in Cape Verde
16/01/2024
 
Armona Denizcilik once again demonstrates its commitment to a zero-incidence industry as top-level managers exemplify their dedication to the company's vessels by undertaking long and arduous trips to the most remote corners of the world.
 
On the 16th of January, our CEO Mr. Lorenz Weinstabl and CTO Mr. Marlon Weinstabl embarked on a Safety & Leadership Visit to the tanker vessel Atlantis Antao, docked in the Port of Mindelo, Cape Verde. The leadership duo underscored the paramount importance of safety, reminding the crew that their diligent efforts form the bedrock of Armona's safety culture.
 
Addressing the crew, Mr. Lorenz Weinstabl stated, "At Armona, safety is not merely a priority; it is the cornerstone of our operations. Even here in Cape Verde, we have demonstrated unwavering patience in imparting our safety and quality culture to the local mariners we employ. The small group of Turkish Officers and our regular visits to the vessel enable us to uphold standards similar to those on our other fleet vessels. We take pride in serving our clients and anticipate their continued trust in our services."
 
In alignment with this sentiment, Mr. Marlon Weinstabl, CTO, added, "The Armona Safety Culture thrives on the dedication and expertise of every crew member. Every safety decision, reported near-miss, and meticulously followed procedure contributes to building a stronger, more resilient safety ethos across our fleet. Remarkably, through substantial investments in maintenance during the shipyard period and dedicated training, we have ensured that our vessel has not experienced a single day of off-hire in our over three-and-a-half-year tenure here, even as a nearly 20-year-old vessel. Our clients acknowledge our reliability and have expressed their satisfaction with the quality of our operations, considering our vessel the best maintained and managed they have ever chartered. We hope that this performance will contribute to a reevaluation of vessel age limitation policies of the parent company as we look forward to continuing our service and contributing to the empowerment of local communities."
 
This visit by the top-level leadership served as a poignant reminder of the personal touch and commitment of the Owners, explaining the success of Armona. Engaging in open dialogue with the crew during their onboard visit, they acknowledged challenges and celebrated achievements. As Atlantis Antao prepared to set sail, both leaders extended heartfelt wishes for a safe and productive journey, reaffirming Armona's dedication not only to operational excellence but also to the well-being of its people and the planet.

History that (Still) Lives On
12/01/2024
In the early years of this century, Turkish shipping experienced a notable upturn, with Turkish owners actively investing in new buildings. Simultaneously, speculative shipyards sought to capitalize on the increasing demand for vessels from foreign shipowners. The period leading up to the Lehman Brothers' Crisis in 2008 marked an unprecedented era in the industry.
 
Over the decades, spanning from the 1990s to the present 2020s, Cafer Tekkan and Lorenz Weinstabl have borne witness to significant changes in the maritime landscape. Whenever they convene, they share breathtaking memories, recounting a shared past that spans multiple decades.
 
The scent of retirement pervades the air at Turgut Vindili, signaling the realization among these industry veterans that they are gradually becoming extinct. The stories they hold, forged through years of experience, may fade into obscurity as a new generation begins to take the helm.
 
Even cherished traditions, such as BYOF (bring your own fish), which involved purchasing fish from the open-air market in Besiktas and having it expertly prepared by one of the nearby traditional restaurants, face the risk of becoming history.
 
At these dinners, it becomes apparent that the professional relationship forged over decades has transcended into a strong, bonded friendship. The connection between these individuals extends beyond the confines of the workplace, creating a profound camaraderie that is likely to endure beyond the shifts in the maritime industry and the passage of time.

Atlantis Armona ....and where it all started 20 years ago
01/12/2023
Today, we say "farewell" to the first owned and built “lady” in our fleet, which was with us from the day she opened her eyes. The hull was built in Gelibolu in partnership with Mehmet Aksoy in 2003 and completed at Selah Shipyard. There are many more remarkable events around these 3500dwt ships in the beginning of Atlantis Tankers, a pioneer time for many tanker shipping companies that evolved from all kind of other businesses.

Our sincere thanks to the crew of Armona for their well-kept maintenance and our technical team at Armona Denizcilik for the installation of the BWTS.
 
We wish the new Owners success in operating her in the few years left of her lifetime.

On November 29th, HSEQ Manager DPA/CSO Mr. Gökhan Pehlivan visited Atlantis Almeria. His visit focused on promoting a learner mindset, encouraging open communication, and emphasizing the company's commitment to human factor principles. Mr. Pehlivan highlighted the importance of learning from mistakes, fostering a blame-free culture, and understanding the contextual factors that influence human behavior. He also emphasized the significance of responding to failures constructively and using them as opportunities for growth.
 
These routinely planned and executed safety & leadership vessel visits are not mere formalities; they are tangible expressions of Armona's dedication to its people and its vessels.
