Swedish tanker shipping company Stena Bulk has held a naming ceremony for the Stena Immaculate, the ninth of a total of 13 IMOIIMAX MR tankers at Guangzhou Shipbuilding International (GSI) shipyard in China.

The 50,000 dwt vessel, which will be delivered from GSI within the next few days, will sail from Papua New Guinea to Europe on its maiden voyage.

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 delivery of the tenth tanker from the batch, the Stena Impeccable, is scheduled to take place in March 2017.

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.
