Those days Indian senior officers were employed through the erstwhile Eurasia Shipping. Back then MMS had about 8/9 tankers in it’s fleet. The past decade has seen the MMS tanker fleet grow to about 21 or so. I was lucky to be a part of this growing organization.
35 years of sea life. Out of which 28 years as Chief Engineer. It was a long journey. Do not know how much to go. Looking back it was a great experience. Started with Cargo ships in the year 1978 and switched over to Tankers in the year 1990.
MMSI is the Indian Manning wing of MMS (Tokyo and Singapore) which has also diversified into MMS’s Technical Group.
When I joined MMSI in 2002, as a Chief Officer, what I was looking was a steady job and a promotion to the rank of Master.I cannot say that, in the initial years I got everything what I wanted, but MMSI did their best to get me, what I was looking for.
