Preem + Tern Ocean = 10% BIOFUEL

26 Mar 2020

Tern Ocean, time-chartered by Preem gets renewable fuel blend.

Today we can announce that Preems vessels are soon going to be supplied with a new fuel blend consisting of 10 percent renewable fuel. Where our Tern Ocean is one of the time-chartered tankers. This means that Tern Oceans fuel is going to be a blend consisting of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the renewable liquefied biogas (LBG). That Preem is taking this step to make the time-chartered fleet run on 10 percent biofuel shows that they are a part of the transition to a sustainable future. We are grateful for Preems commitment towards making the shipping industry sustainable, and we at Terntank feel honored to work with companies like Preem that works hard to achieve their sustainability goals.

Meet the crew

10 Mar 2020

We present our first edition of Meet The Crew – Meet Daniel & Torbjörn

Meet The Crew is going to take you closer to the people that work onboard our ships and get to know the Terntank crew a little better!

Name: Daniel Leopando
Position: Master
Current vessel: Ternvik
Years with Terntank: 14 years

What are important factors to have “happy ship” according to you?
– A happy ship should have a spirit of camaraderie. A good relationship with each and every crew is important, giving them my full support and attention not only at work but also to their personal matters if needed. I let them feel that their work is being appreciated even in small things that inspire them to do more, than what is expected.

What is your advice to future cadets?
– For future cadets, always remember that experience is the best education. Keep on learning. Perseverance, hard work, and discipline are the key to success!

Name: Torbjörn Beyersdorf
Position: 2:nd Engineer
Current vessel: M/T Ternvag
Years with Terntank: 3,5 years

How do you like it on board M/T Ternvag?
– I like it. For me, a tanker on the spot market is what life at sea should be like. Why? Several reasons. One is that it is easy to stay in touch with my family due to the trade. Another reason is that anyone in the office is just a phone call or email away. It doesn’t matter if I call the superintendent or even the owner of the company. They answer and give me the support I need. Last but not least. HR-department called when I was having a crisis at home and just asked how I am. Small thing but means a lot.

What is your advice to the future seafarer?
– For cadets. The most important thing is curiosity. Keep asking questions and don’t be afraid to look stupid. The best cadet I’ve ever had asked the most stupid questions. It is also important to not accept any form of harassment if that should occur.
