Almi Tankers S.A. achieves 3-Year Flawless Paris MoU Performance

As of the first quarter of 2022, the Paris MoU 3-years rolling Port State Control inspections record of Almi Tankers is flawless. All PARIS MoU Port State Control inspections on board our fleet from European and other MoU ports have been completed with zero (0) deficiencies.

It is worth pointing out that during the same period, for tanker vessels only, 3353 Paris MoU inspections were conducted which resulted in 4060 deficiencies, indicating an average of 1.2 deficiencies per inspection.

During the past decade, Almi Tankers achieved an average of 0.02 deficiencies per inspection, compared with 2.44 for the industry. 

Paris MoU is an organisation that consists of twenty-seven (27) participating maritime Administrations and covers the waters of the European coastal States and the North Atlantic basin from North America to Europe. Annually more than 17,000 inspections take place on board foreign ships in the Paris MoU ports by the organisation, with the aim to ensure that these ships meet international safety, security, and environmental standards, and that the crew members have adequate living and working conditions.

Almi Tankers S.A. has defined and monitors several KPIs that reflect the company’s progress towards its Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality goals. The outcome of these KPIs is calculated at the end of each quarter and presented at the Management Review Meeting as well as on our webpage. 

Well done to the whole team for their continuous efforts and commitment!

Redelivery of Almi Hercules – under the Management of Almi Tankers!

We are very glad to announce that M/T Almi Hercules (previously Hercules Voyager) has been redelivered to Almi Tankers’ Management after being on long term Bareboat charter with Chevron Transport Corporation LTD since her delivery in 2014.

M/T Almi Hercules was built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd (DSME) to the highest industry standards at DSME’s Okpo Shipyard. She is a 319,000 DWT tanker equipped with the MAN HHI 7G80ME-C9.2 Green-type engine and OceanSaver’s Filtration & Electrodialysis Ballast Water Treatment System. The G-type is an ultra long stroke engine, which in conjunction with a larger diameter propeller offers significant fuel savings and produces less emissions than engines with the same output, thus classifying it as one of the most environmentally efficient propulsion systems.

M/T Almi Hercules flies the Liberian flag and is classed under Lloyd’s Register.

We wish to her Master and his crew, Fair Winds and Following Seas.
