The expectations required of ship managers are becoming more and more challenging these days. Ballas Water Management, Scrubbers among others, are causing significant impact to the budget of vessels.
In the past years I have been involved in innumerable tank cleaning operations including optimising tank cleaning processes. It was interesting to observe that even sister vessels were using different schedules and methods for the same tank cleaning operation (cleaning from/to). So, what were the reasons?
The solution for saving time and money during tank cleaning operations is simple.
Taking all the above into consideration, it is easy to calculate the savings when optimizing the tank cleaning operations.
Apart from this, it should be taken into consideration that reducing the energy for tank cleaning will also reduce the overall emissions of the tanker.
