The chemical and product tanker has a length of 183 meters and a beam of 32 meters.

All the IMOIIMAX tankers will be included in a fleet operated by Stena Weco and will sail in the company’s global logistics system, which currently employs more than 60 vessels.

The remaining three ships are set to join the company’s fleet by 2018.

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