Two US Coast Guard Marine Inspectors were welcomed onboard the Wallem-managed vessel ‘Tofteviken’, as part of the USCG Ship Rider Programme.

The MMI Ship Rider Program is a cooperative educational program between the Coast Guard and participating host ship companies, aimed at ensuring and enhancing safety and security at sea by enabling USCG Marine Inspectors to experience operations on tanker work firsthand.

Wallem is one of the few Ship Management companies to have offered this learning experience for the USCG Marine Inspectors. During their three-day voyage, the Marine Inspectors learnt all about various operations onboard, including discharging, loading and STS/Lightering operations. They shadowed the crew onboard, occupying their work spaces and asking them questions about the work involved.

The Inspectors said they learned much information which “will only aid in building better Marine Inspectors.”

“With safety at sea as one of our main focuses, Wallem looks forward to working together closely with the USCG to further support this programme,” the company noted.
