Coating Challenges in the Chemical Tanker Market

Safinah Group is very proud to become the latest Incentive Provider as part of the Green Award certification scheme.

Green Award is a platform for promoting safety, quality and environmental performance in shipping by facilitating a network of incentive providers with a range of benefits for certificate holders. Green Award certificate holders can demonstrate that they go above and beyond international standards and outstanding commitment to safety and the environment by continual improvement.

As part of the scheme, Safinah Group offers a 10% discount on coating condition survey or pre-drydock survey for new customers with Green Award certified sea-going ships when subsequent coating project management at drydock is awarded to Safinah Group.

Safinah Group’s MD, Mr Andy Hopkinson says: “We are privileged to be part of such a great initiative and to be in a position to provide an incentive to forward-thinking shipping companies who invest in promoting the quality and safety of international shipping.”

Safinah Group’s Technical Service Team specialises in coating project management, coating process optimisation, general support at drydock and onboard training. Safinah Group’s experienced coating project managers are available in key drydock locations in Asia, Europe and the Americas and conduct more than 4,000-man days of ship surveys and drydock inspections annually.
