Safety is our number one priority

It is the policy of Top Fenders Limited that the management and employees, through our activities, products and services, strictly conform to the HSEQ legislations and regulations set out by Top Fenders management.


Top Fenders prides itself in offering a team of mooring masters with training, experience, passion and loyalty. This dedication and expertise provides customers with the highest level of safety and performance in the STS transfers.

Our mooring masters’ responsibilities for the safety of each operation include:

  • Managing ocean-going oil tankers lightering operations and to ensure safe and environmentally sound procedures throughout the operations
  • Ensuring officers of both the lightering vessel and the vessel to be lightered comply with safety requirements to avoid oil spills and incidents 
  • Terminating the lightering operation if the safety of the vessels, crew or environmental protection so requires 
  • Guaranteeing the vessels' design and condition are up to par for the operation 
  • Advising masters of both tankers of all procedures for a safe and sound operation 
  • Supervising the vessels' approach, manoeuvring into final position, mooring and positioning of the lightering hoses 
  • Monitoring the transfer of oil into the lightering vessel to ensure that no leaks or spills occur 
  • Overseeing the connection of hoses and manoeuvring of vessels upon completion of the operation


Our pool of mooring masters for our non-West African STS operations are based in Europe and are all of European origin. All our mooring masters hold relevant certifications and have wide experience within the industry as STS Superintendents, having worked for at least one Major oil company in the past.


In line with a government request for assistance and in order to improve the quality of mooring masters in West Africa, we are sourcing young cadets from Oron State Academy. With our dedication to health and safety, Top Fenders has embarked on a shore based training institute for Nigerian mooring masters. 

The program enhances their skills and competence, ensuring a certified quality standard for all mooring masters recruited within Top Fenders. All qualified mooring masters that are selected will need to go through the training academy to be deemed certified to operate for our company. Chief Mooring Master and Head of Training Instructor are both ex Seagoing Captains (Master Mariner) holding Certificate of Competency as Master (unrestricted).

All our Mooring Masters are fully MARPOL compliant and meet the following requirements:

  • Appropriate management level license in accordance with international STCW certification standards
  • Valid medical certificate
  • Satisfactorily completed a recognised STS simulator course
  • DCE (Dangerous Cargo Endorsement)
  • On Scene Commander Course
  • All Mooring Masters are subjected to annual assessment and refresher training courses by our HSEQ department
