Stena Bulk Orders Another Suezmax Tanker

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

Stena Bulk, which recently confirmed an order at Samsung Shipyard for six in-house designed Suezmax tankers for delivery in 2011/2012, has now placed further one order of a Suezmax tanker – the seventh in the series.

The vessels have been designed by Stena’s own design department in accordance with the most advanced technology available today. The result is dramatically improved energy efficiency, which will, among other things, reduce fuel and bunker consumption by up to 15% compared with most efficient, conventionally designed Suezmax tankers currently in operation.
