Chemical tanker owner Swiss-Canadian Maritime Ltd., has ordered three 21,800 dwt chemical tankers from Triyards Holdings Limited.
The three tankers are due for delivery in 2017, and will be managed by the Swiss-based ABC Maritime A.G.
These new International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type 2-certified, double-hull ice-classed tankers will have a storage capacity of 24,000 cbm, and will be specially adapted for operating in colder climates.
Swiss-Canadian Maritime Ltd’s Chairman Hans Tanner said: “We have awarded this contract to TRIYARDS based on their strong engineering and fabrication expertise, and also taking into account their excellent track record of building specialised ships for global clients. With these three new builds of chemical tankers, we are poised to strengthen our service offerings to our customers.”
The steel for the first of the three tankers was cut at Triyards shipyard in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on September 25.
The vessels are named SCML Toronto, SCML Montreal and SCML Calgary.
