“What’s happening at Fleet in relation to Spar” was lucidly presented by Capt Rangnekar on behalf of Mr. K. S. Rajvanshy, Managing Director – Fleet Management Ltd who was unable to make it to the conference. “Fleet is considered by the industry as the benchmark,” Capt Rangnekar explained. “It is the 4th Largest Ship Manager in the world, largest fleet managed from Hong Kong and has a broad based recognition which is amply proved having secured the ‘2007 Awards for Best Ship, Safety at Sea, Training and Innovation’ award.

An introduction to Spar Shipping AS was made by Capt. Pritish Deshpande. In his own words – “Spar Shipping are not asset players, but wholly focused on excellence and long term commitments.

He mentioned the potential penalties in the U.S. for individuals and the do’s & don’ts in the event of an incident.
“Safety and productivity always run hand in hand and a safe ship is always a productive ship,” was maxim by which seafarers should abide by according to Capt. Anurag Sharma, Operations Superintendent, Ebony Ship Management Ltd, Delhi while presenting “Case Studies of Operational Losses”. Another aspect was presented by Trygve C Nokleby, GARD in his talk on “Risk Assessment & Safety Awareness”
