    Medium Range fleet to see modernization this year

    Our newbuilding project comprised of two 50,000 dwt-class product/chemical tankers has begun taking shape at Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard Co. Ltd. The keel laying and steel cutting for hulls no. S472 and S466 (both to be named) are scheduled to take place in the coming weeks.

    Representing an evolution of Hyundai’s world-ranking workhorse, these vessels will enable us to continue offering clients a dependable service. Commercial operations for S472 should commence in Q4 2019. Sister vessel S466 is scheduled to join the fleet in Q1 2020. The anomaly in hull numbers is not a typo but the result of S472 having been ordered later and subsequently jumping the production queue to where a slot had become available.

    At a time when the shipping industry is facing a multitude of environmental and commercial challenges, we are confident that ships such as these will allow us to deal with them effectively.

    Triple naming during 21 June ceremony

    Company delegates and distinguished guests travelled to the excellent Hyundai Samho facilities located on the south-western coast of South Korea for the naming of three newbuildings: VLGC “Tenacity IV” and Aframax sisters “Affinity V” and “Spirit II”. The Roman numerals indicate how many ships in the Transpetrol fleet previously featured the respective names, underlining the company’s extensive history.

    With the ships banked side by side, a fine display of synchronous axing by the godmothers was followed by a successful bottle-breaking ceremony on each ship. The company’s greatly respected maritime officers completed the picture.

    Midsummer hails the rainy season in this region, but auspiciously the event on 21 June enjoyed fine conditions throughout.

    The three ships are slated for delivery between early July and late August 2016. Ensuring that the ships are future-proof, each comes equipped with an integrated, fully compliant ballast water treatment system together with the latest shipboard technology.

    We would like to thank all those involved in their construction, delivery and naming.
