ACI’s Optimising Bunker Management & Vessel Efficiency Summit held in London on February 1-2nd 2012 enjoyed considerable success. The agenda featured thought provoking presentations from leading shipping companies such as Wallenius, Stolt Tankers, OW Tankers, Grieg Shipping and many others.  With numerous business cards exchanged and an enthusiastic audience constituted mostly by shipping companies, the event offered a platform for real exchange of ideas in reducing vessel fuel consumption and identifying best practices within the current energy and regulatory landscape

Looking ahead to the 2013 edition of the event, ACI is committed to its improvement and further development to deliver an even better learning and networking opportunity for our clients.  In this regard Maersk Tankers, OW Tankers, Intertanko, Bimco, the American Chamber of Shipping and John T. Esseberger  are to mention but a few of the leading companies, who have already confirmed their participation in what promises to be another thought-provoking event.
