South Korea: Samsung Holds Naming Ceremony for Suezmax Tanker Stena Superior

Today Mrs Rosa Jose Marie Sumbe, wife of Mr. Baptista Sumbe, Executive Chairman of Sonangol Holdings Ltd, named Stena Bulk’s first ultra modern, low consumption and partly in-house designed, Suezmax tanker Stena Superior at a ceremony at Samsung HI, Geoje, Korea.

The Stena Superior is the first Suezmax tanker in the series of seven vessels of which most will join the successful Stena Sonangol Suezmax Pool. The Pool was formed in 2005 and is controlled by Stena Bulk and the state-owned Angolan oil company Sonangol.

These new series of Suezmax tankers have a dramatically improved energy efficiency, which will among other things, reduce bunker consumption by up to 15 percent compared with the most efficient, conventional Suezmax tankers currently on the waters.

The Pool has today a total of some 20 Suezmax tankers and there will totally be up to some 30 modern tankers with an average age of only 3.5 years once both Sonangol’s five newbuildings and ours have been delivered,” says Ulf G. Ryder, President & CEO of Stena Bulk AB.

Technical data:

Deadweight 158,000 tons

Lenght 274 metres 48 metres beam

The next Stena Bulk Suezmax in the series is the Stena Suede which will be delivered already the 15 November and she will at the same time enter a long term timecharter with the French oil giant Total.
