Recording of wash water analysis webinar

Published: 04 January 2022

This is a recording of a webinar which took place on 16 December 2021 about the use of wash water analysis as opposed to wall wash tests to ascertain tank cleanliness before commencement of loading operations in chemical tankers.

Did you know there’s a cheaper, cleaner and safer alternative to a wall wash test when you need to be sure your tank is clean?

UV/Vis spectrophotometry saves time, cost, CO2 emissions and tank entries. What’s more, it reduces the risk of cargo contamination through the load lines, which has traditionally been the primary source of such contaminations.

Speakers at the webinar were:

  • Guy Johnson, Founder and owner of L.I. Maritime
  • Dorte Creaven, General Manager, Optimization, MOL Chemical Tankers’ Europe Division
  • Marty Utterback, Loss Control Manager, Chevron Phillips Chemical

Moderator was BIMCO's Head of Maritime Safety and Security, Jakob P. Larsen.
