Swedish tanker shipping company Stena Bulk has named Stena Imperator and Stena Imprimis, the eleventh and twelfth of the company’s thirteen IMOIIMAX tanker newbuildings. 

The christening ceremony was held at Guangzhou Shipbuilding International (GSI) shipyard in Guangzhou, southeast China. Both 50,000 dwt vessels, which feature a length of 183 meters and a beam of 32 meters, are owned by Stena Bulk.

“We are now approaching the final delivery of our large order consisting of 13 IMOIIMAX tankers. We are very proud of and satisfied with our fleet, which now consists of ten units in operation. Both the technical and the commercial concept have proved to be very successful,” Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk, said.

The Stena Imperator will be handed over to the company next week, while the delivery of the Stena Imprimis is expected to take place in about two months.

On its maiden voyage, the Stena Imperator will sail to Papa New Guinea and then to Rotterdam. The two tankers will be operated by Stena Bulk’s Product and Chemical Operation and will sail in its global logistics system, which currently employs some 60 vessels.

The 13th and last IMOIIMAX tanker will be delivered in January next year, according to the company.

In late June 2017, Stena Impeccable, the tenth tanker from the batch, was christened at the Port of Rotterdam.

Six of the 13 IMOIIMAX tankers are wholly owned by Stena Bulk, four together with Singapore’s palm oil company Golden Agri Resources (GAR), two by Stena Bulk’s sister company Concordia Maritime and one in partnership with Weco.
