Crescent takes delivery of new design ships

Saturday, March 03, 2001
U.K. shipping and transport group Crescent PLC has added two 2,670 dwt bulk carriers to the fleet of ships operated by Crescent Shipping, the group's dry cargo shipping division. "The Crescent Seine and the Crescent Rhine are of a brand new design and are exceptionally flexible ships. Both have low air draft designs, allowing them to trade on combined river-sea routes. Fully loaded with 134,800 cu ft of grain, for instance, they will still only have a draft of 4.05 m and an air draft of 5.2 m. Moreover, both are fully fitted to carry 84 teu boxes," says Jim Stewart, managing director of Crescent Shipping. The Crescent group of companies comprises four distinct divisions operating throughout Europe. Crescent Tankships, the group's petroleum product distribution arm, is recognized by a number of oil majors as a reliable and high-quality products carrier. Crescent Shipping, the group's dry cargo shipping division, is a leading European dry bulk distribution and logistics partner on short sea and river trades. Seatruck Ferries, the group's freight ferry division, is a key independent player on the Ireland-UK trades with an unsurpassed reputation for reliability and service. Lastly, Crescent Marine Services, the group's ship management division, is a fully certified technical and commercial manager specializing in high-intensity short sea management.
