LSC Shipmanagement, a subsidiary of JSC Latvian Shipping Company, welcomed a newbuilding bitumen tanker into its technically managed fleet.

Asphalt Synergy, the first bitumen tanker in the LSCSM fleet and one of the largest asphalt transporting ships in the world, featured a total length of 175 meters, width of 30 meters, and load capacity of 37,000 tonnes.

“This is the 26th ship in our fleet under management.  As a result, we have expanded our range of services. We are now able to transport asphalt products and as such, are attracting more and more new customers and partners,Robert Kirkup, Chairman of the Board JSC Latvian Shipping Company, said.

The 37,000 dwt asphalt carrier Asphalt Synergy was built by Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Co, which hosted the naming and delivery ceremony for the ship on January 9, 2018. The vessel is owned by US-based transportation company Valt.

The previous addition to the LSCSM fleet took place last June 2017, when tanker Elandra Falcon was received as part of the technical management fleet.
