Sweden’s tanker shipping company Stena Bulk has taken delivery of an MR tanker Stena Imagination from the Chinese shipyard Guangzhou Shipbuilding International (GSI).

Jointly owned on a 50-50 basis by Stena Bulk and Indonesian Golden Agri Resources (GAR), the vessel is the seventh of a total of thirteen IMOIIMAX tankers ordered by Stena Bulk.

Featuring a length of 183 metres and a beam of 32 metres, the tanker will be operated by Stena Weco and sail in the company’s global logistics system, which currently employs about 60 vessels.

The 50,000 dwt vessel is the third tanker to be delivered in 2016. Stena Bulk earlier took delivery of Stena Imperative and Stenaweco Impulse.

The remaining six vessels will be delivered every third month and the last vessel in 2018, the company said.

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.

During 2015, the company expanded its fleet with Stena Impression, Stena Image, Stena Imperial and Stena Important.
