mt Torm Almena - Post 1

On the 10th and 16th of July 2013 I was hired by a marine consultancy firm to act as a Marine Superintendent for a shipping company in the process of purchasing a products tanker, mt Torm Almena. The requirement was for me to attend the vessel at the Melbourne anchorage while divers performed an underwater hull survey and to take a comprehensive set of photos around the ship in order to provide a vessel condition report. The second visit was to perform a bunker survey, verifying the amount of fuel oil and lube oils aboard the ship. It was a very interesting project for me, made easier because the ship, only three years old, was in excellent condition.
This is a small selection of the photos I took on these visits.
