By renewing our current fleet with well-built vessels, BW Pacific will continue to strive for outstanding service to customers.  We have strong ambitions in the product tanker segment and these vessels will continue our steady growth in the sector.”

The newbuildings will bring BW Pacific’s product tanker fleet size to 43.
