Columbia moderates the Tanker Panel at the Maritime CEO Forum during Singapore Week

Scrubbers present a commercial advantage for tanker owners, maintained a majority of panellists speaking at last week’s tanker session during the Maritime CEO Forum.

Taking place at the iconic five-star Fullerton Hotel in the heart of Singapore, the panel featured Mark O’Neil, the president of Columbia Shipmanagement, as moderator with Kenny Rogers, the head Aurora Tankers, Rajesh Unni, a director at Global United Shipping, Pankaj Khanna, a board member at Heidmar and Lars Malmbratt, general manager of Stena Bulk Singapore.
