Chemical and product tanker Stenaweco Impulse, jointly owned by Swedish Stena Bulk and Danish Weco Shipping, was named on June 13 at Langelinie Pier in Copenhagen. 

The 50,000 dwt Stenaweco Impulse is the sixth in a series of 13 IMOIIMAX MR newbuilding tankers.

Three of the 13 IMOIIMAX tankers are wholly owned by Stena Bulk, six together with GAR (Golden Agri Resources), two by Stena Bulk’s sister company Concordia Maritime and two by Stena Weco, a joint venture between Stena Bulk and Weco Shipping.

“The Stenaweco Impulse, has given our collaboration with Stena Bulk a new dimension as we now also have a jointly owned vessel,” Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg, chairman of Weco Shipping said.

The Stenaweco Impulse is 183 meters long and 32 meters wide. It will trade in Stena Weco’s global logistic system.

The IMOIIMAX design was developed by Stena Teknik together with the Chinese shipyard Guanzhou Shipbuilding International (GSI).

The Stena Impression, Stena Image, Stena Imperial and Stena Important were delivered in 2015 and the Stena Imperative in January 2016.

The remaining seven vessels are expected to be delivered by 2018.
