HOSE HANDLING EQUIPMENT
A word with the captain...
How you would describe the life onboard a Green Ship?
My life onboard Green Ship is not different from the life I had been with my previous employment. But of course, every time you board a ship, you always make a new story of your life. At Green Ship, I find it here more challenging because the vessel is much modern, and every task I do is more motivating and stimulating. You have to endure all the burdens and responsibilities to perform your duties to the best you can and meet the expectations of the company. Also as a Master onboard, the relationships with crewmates, although right from the start, you have to implement your own systems and standards when work is concerned, and somehow gained friendships, others may not understand or misunderstood what you aim for or what you impart to them, but through patience and tolerance, with balance decisions and understanding, we learned from one another, I have helped and teaches them to the fullest of my own knowledge, and through these, we unite and work as a team to fulfill our purpose onboard.
Having you onboard in our Green fleet for a long time, why you select Aegean Shipping for your career?
I had been with a different shipping company before and had seen and experience their treatment with their crews that in my mind and heart, I had it compared. But having been with Aegean Shipping for a long time, made me realized that I honestly wanted to build a lasting relationship with a certain shipping company, that I decided and hope that I would find it here with Aegean Shipping.Although I know that there are things that we don’t meet with each other, but through my own experience with your company, you somehow manage to give in to some favors I had requested or sometimes take into considerations some of our demands that you think would benefited us. And also for the relationship I gained with the Company and the crews that I still want to try and give my trust and confidence to work with your Company and hoping also that you may find may services and performances meets your standards and expectations. The Company also trying their very best to be observant, noticed and give credit to some of the essentials, sacrifices and efforts of the crew to do their duties which promoted them to the ranks/positions that they deserved. Through these, I hope and looking forward to a long working relationship with your Company. God Bless Us Always.
For what reasons you would recommend to someone to join our Green fleet?
I would likely recommend ASM, because having visited the Company and meet some of the persons involved in the management, known and being familiar with the Company standard and the vessels (our Green fleet) that can keep the pace and meet with the fast growing of modernization in the shipping company are some reasons to recommend. And to all aspiring ratings/officers when some demands due to some prospects, they can consider it as a testing of their capabilities and an opportunity for them show how much they can go and have a chance to be able to get into a promotion. This might be the best chance to take care of their career and reach whatever goal they wanted to achieve in life.
