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.

Port Finance International Mexico 2015

Given the successful gathering last June of our 1st Port Finance International Mexico & LATAM, PFI will be holding the 2nd Mexican & LATAM PFI Forum.

This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

Mexico’s port development and operations is currently thriving, with great opportunities of product and service provider companies to access high value opportunities.

Mexico’s Infrastructure investment has grown from 3% of GDP in 2000 to nearly 5% in 2012.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
