Following for the American Club members:

Your Managers are pleased to announce the release of the American Club’s latest e-learning module,

Ship-to-Ship Transfer. Ship-to-ship (STS) cargo transfer operations are significantly more complex than those involving a single vessel discharge of cargo, and involve a broader set of risk factors relevant to safety and environmental protection. The new e-learning module provides guidance for ships’ crews involved in STS operations in an easy-to-understand format.
The module is an amalgamation of best practices drawn from existing industry sources such as the OCIMF’s Ship to Ship Transfer Guide for Petroleum, Chemicals and Liquefied Gases, IMO’s Manual on Oil Pollution, and additional inputs and insights from experts with years of experience and knowledge of STS operations for dry bulk, liquid and gas cargoes.
