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.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
