New American Club e-learning tool on ship-to-ship transfer

American Club’s managers have released the Club’s latest e-learning module, Ship-to-Ship Transfer.

The Club noted that STS cargo transfer operations were significantly more complex than those involving a single vessel discharge of cargo, and involved a broader set of risk factors relevant to safety and environmental protection.

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.
