A must-have for officers serving, or wishing to serve, on Chemical Tankers.

There are many operations that are carried out simultaneously onboard a chemical tanker, such as loading, discharging, tank cleaning, gas freeing, ballasting, deballasting and so on. However, the main rule onboard any tanker is that all operations are to be conducted in a competent and professional manner. Certain operations must be suspended if there is any threat or likelihood of loss of control. The chemical tanker fulfils the most extreme idea of customer satisfaction by offering ‘Just in Time’ (JIT) transport of a multitude of liquid cargoes. This book is designed to provide some answers on ‘what to do’ and ‘how to do it’ for officers and cadets on chemical tankers. The subjects are organised in the order that they occur, from the receipt of voyage orders to the completion of cargo discharge and the practice of pre-wash.

Capt Vladimir Kunichkin has more than 30 years of experience on oil and chemical tankers, working his way through the ranks until achieving the position of Master with Knud I. Larsen Ship Management.

A strong interest in seafarer training led Vladimir to the position of training officer at the “LAPA” centre, specializing in training senior officers in chemical tanker operations.

Captain Kunichkin now holds the position of training manager with Tesmar.
