Concordia Maritime Charters Out P-MAX Tanker

Swedish tanker shipping company Concordia Maritime has signed a contract with an undisclosed Chinese shipping company to charter out a P-MAX tanker.

The contract is for two years and comes into effect in late January/early February 2016.

“The contract is fully in line with our fleet and earnings strategy. We are now taking advantage of the strong market and chartering out one of our P-MAX tankers over a longer period. This means that we ensure a good level of income for the vessel over the next two years, while balancing our exposure to the spot market in a well-judged way,” says Kim Ullman, CEO of Concordia Maritime.

According to the company, the vessel will be mainly used to transport heavy oil products between Korea, Japan and China, as several of the ports in the region are relatively shallow and the P-MAX tanker is well suited to cope with this. .

“The goal for the P-MAX fleet is precisely to concentrate employment on trades and chartering systems where the unique properties of the tankers come into their own, and where there is potential to achieve premium rates. The contract that has been signed shows the strength of this niche strategy – even when it comes to transporting heavy oil products,” says Ullman.

Concordia Maritime’s wholly-owned fleet consists of ten P-MAX product tankers, two newly built IMOIIMAX chemical and product tankers, and one suezmax tanker.
