Tank cleaning for your high-stakes challenges.

Tank cleaning is a high-stakes challenge for parcel/product tanker operators. Inadequate cleaning can result in costly survey failures and delays in obtaining gas-free certificates. Resorting to carrying low-value cargo for tank cleaning purposes impacts revenue, while cross-contamination of cargoes, because tanks are not cleaned properly, can mean outright losses. Using non-approved cleaners can also lead to possible port state penalties.
