Spill Center recently expanded its international client base with the addition of Fleet Management Ltd., a leading provider of ship management services to cargo ship owners. Headquartered in Hong Kong, the company is responsible for the full technical management of more than 260 modern ships, emphasizing safety, pollution prevention and on-board maintenance.

With offices around the world, Fleet Management Ltd. leverages the resources of Spill Center to offer chemical incident response support services to ship owners. Those services include immediate response management services, comprehensive regulatory expertise and reporting, cleanup contractor referrals, invoice auditing, and a proven method to place the spill generator in a legally defensible position, relates Tom Moses, Spill Center president.

He explains that Spill Center is positioned to provide support to owners of vessels involved in marine pollution events and spill-related claims wherever they occur around the world, helping spill generators contain costs and limit liability arising from environmental releases.

Staffed by environmental, technical and legal specialists, Spill Center has provided 24/7 support to clients in the transportation, chemical and insurance industries for more than 23 years, becoming a North American leader in spill support and environmental claims management. Spill Center resources include advanced communications technology and up-to-date listings of local, federal and international regulations, as well as spill reporting contacts and reporting deadlines.

Spill Center maintains a database of cleanup contractors in countries worldwide from which spill generators can select. The company can also provide global communications and other services as required by clients, relates Tom, a former U.S. EPA toxicologist who holds a law degree and a certificate in Hazardous Materials Control and Emergency Response.

“Clients count on us to get past spill incidents and avoid fines and penalties for non-compliance with reporting regulations,” he observes. “We tailor our menu of services to the needs of any company at risk for pollution events and environmental releases, helping them minimize environmental damage and avoid trouble with regulatory authorities.”
