Arctic Directory: Polar Tankers receives award

The Bellingham Herald reported Aug. 7 that representatives from the State of Washington Department of Ecology recently presented Polar Tankers with its Exceptional Compliance Program Award.

The award was given to the subsidiary of ConocoPhillips for achieving excellence in marine safety and environmental stewardship.

The oil tankers arrive approximately twice a week at the Ferndale dock near the ConocoPhillips’ Ferndale refinery.

Polar Tankers operates U.S.-flagged crude oil tankers on the West Coast including Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. Its five modern, Endeavor Class tankers are specifically designed to carry crude oil in an environmentally safe manner.

The double-hulled vessels feature 10 feet of space between the inner and outer hulls, two independent engine rooms, redundant propulsion, twin steering systems and a bow thruster.
